GREAT Foundation distributes toys

GREAT Foundation in collaboration with Toybank distributed 240 toys to children at Dr Ambedkar Primary school and Mahadji Shinde Primary school on 23 Oct 2010 as a Pre Diwali gift. Around 107 toys were distributed to all the children (Nursery to IVth std) at Dr Ambedkar Primary school and the remainder 133 toys were given to (Nursery to IInd grade) children at Mahadji Shinde. Avni and Preethi from Toybank and Utpala and Jaslene from GREAT Foundation helped at the event. The Balwadi (Nursery) children at both the schools were overjoyed to receive toys as they own almost no toys at all..The toys were wrapped in  newspaper, to avoid comparsion between the toys given to the children.



  1. Hey Jaslene, thanks, It was great fun! I was touched when the Principal of the Mahadaji School came to me while I was at the school gate. She had come to say that she appreciates our love for the school.

    Thanks Avni and Preethi of the Toybank.
    Please add one of your photos Jaslene, I hope there is one. You had the camera so I guess you were behind it all the time?

    • Hi Utpala, it was great fun indeed….btw i didn’t get any pics of mine….i hope avni captured a few….however, it doesn’t matter i loved clicking the giggling and smiling kids…. 🙂 Shwetha has said we’ll conduct the toy distribution at other schools in Mar 2011… 🙂 so would love to capture a few smiling kids….one more time…
