The second wave of covid is causing poverty, distress and death in India. Very sadly we have lost several members of the Order to covid in recent days. Currently 15 Order members are unwell with covid to the point of needing medicines and / or oxygen. With public health supplies running low, these things need to be paid for privately. We want to send £150 to each of these Order members to give them this ability.

We celebrated the Savitribai Fule’s Birth Anniversary at our Gagdebaba Learning Club at Amravati Project with parents and students. The Savitribai is a great revolutionary for the women’s education. She opened First School for women in India in the time when women were not allowed education.
On this occasion we distributed Educational Material to the children for study. Abhayanavita talked on Savitribai’s life and work. Sarika Patil who is Shikshanmitra (Friend of Education) organized this event.

People to People Nagpur decided to start a Education Hut at Bhandup Mumbai for the migrant’s children. The parents of those children happy to have this opportunity as they were missing the school for their children in lockdown and Corona Crisis situation. Those families are from Karnataka for selling grass and known as Ghaswale (grass cutter labours) where Salt Farming used to do but as time passed that stopped and grass selling started from here.
