In Sangola taluka of Solapur district, some women came together under the leadership of Dr Sanjeevani Kelkar and started a movement and also an organisation called Mata Balak Utkarsh Pratishthan for the welfare of women and families. The organisation runs a school for children from lower income groups till Std 10. There are more than 1,000 students in the school.
The school lacked a toilet facility for girls, causing them great inconvenience. A campaign was run through ‘Social for Action’ to get funds to build a toilet in the school. It was received extremely well and Desai Brothers Limited from Pune came forward to extend help through their CSR initiatives. Currently, the construction of the toilet is underway with the help of the funds received.
