Ashakiran Bal Gurukul @Nerul

The road ahead always seems too long& the hills in front always look insurmountable but with faith in our heart we can always reach our dream. Today , this thought of the poet has really come true for us at Ashakiran.
 Last year on this very day we started our pavement school with 14/15 kids & nothing. The sun was glaring above & the kids preferred to drive us away. But Today we r having 50 regular kids & 27 vlntrs with us. 
God must be with us to help us cover this tumultous journey on a rocky road. It is really a moment of true satisfaction & sheer joy tht Ak has become a platform to change our society& we all have got a chance to serve kids who need love care & affection.
