This is Priyanka Chavan. I would like to take this opportunity on my birthday to encourage my dear ones to raise funds for a necessary and social cause in lieu of gifts and unnecessary parties. May your monies be put to better use. I am doing this fundraiser for underprivileged children. Ananya (means unique) Foundation is was set up in 1998 by a group of dedicated individuals who saw the need of educating the poor and underprivileged children of the Indian society, under the leadership of Dr. Shashi Rao. The Ananya Trust, situated outside the city of Bangalore in South India, was set up to provide an unique learning space for those children who are not accepted in the mainstream schools.
