Making of Aarohi campus is not complete without talking about Deb Uncle and many other well wishers who contributed to make this campus happen.
The campus is created with crowd funding – started with land and the story of generosity
Aarohi started in June 2009 in Geniekids Indiranagar center, Bangalore. One year after starting, we realized
- Children need more space
- Children need more children
- Children need more resources (like a carpentry workshop or a music room which was not feasible in the current building – because of limited space
Hence we started looking for bigger space.
Deb uncle (Deb Bhushan Mukherjee, grand father of one of Aarohi children) in a super generous gesture donated about 5acres of land – which is now the O campus. Aarohi like a young energetic child is growing up in this salubrious hillside.
We are still at a complete loss at fathoming the kind of greatness that resides in him. So humble that not even once he has shown any desire that he needs to be highlighted, acknowledged or acclaimed for donating so much land to Aarohi. So trusting that he has not asked any questions, not interfered with our efforts once he has donated the land. So magnanimous, that he continues to bestow his time and efforts towards establishing the campus of Aarohi.
We pray one day we too develop such a deep attitude of GIVING
Thank you Deb Uncle.
Every time we receive a gift – we turn to children and say, “We dunno what it is – love, kindness, generosity, abundance, cosmic energy, humanity …Or maybe no one word – but whatever it is – one thing for sure – we are truly blessed”.
