The Anganwadi Project is a not for profit organsation and all the team members and volunteers give their time and expertise voluntarily and free of charge. The project is only possible through the financial contributions from companies but also private individuals who generously donate from their own pocket. From these donations, The Anganwadi Project has been able to set up an on-going program to send volunteers to work on re-building all 66 anganwadi in the slum areas. Thank you to all the many people who have donated to The Anganwadi Project as well as directly to our Volunteers to help them get there, you know who you are. Without your continued support, this project would not be possible. If you want to become an official sponsor or would like to fundraise for our cause, email us, we would be thrilled to hear from you!

Total Balance Group was founded in early 2002 by Kate James. Kate’s vision was to create a boutique coaching and training organisation, offering a range of programs that specifically help people to achieve their objectives while finding fulfillment in both their personal and professional lives. Total Balance now has a team of associates who provide face to face coaching in Melbourne and Sydney.
Kate generously donated to The Anganwandi Project in 2009 and the funds are being used for the start of Bholu 8 which will been seen as a prototype for ongoing construction and design for future anganwadis. Bholu 8 has a lot more detail of the architectural details of sustainable techniques to decrease heat, increase airflow and recycling of rain water. Kate has since made regular ongoing donations since 2009 and for that we are forever grateful - Thank you Kate and all at Total Balance, for your ongoing support in our project.
A big thanks to all the supporters, members and visitors who reached deep into their pockets and pulled out their loose change and dropped it in the donation bucket at the Sydney Architecture Festival.
We are so thrilled at how many people gave to our project and how it all added up. THANKYOU!!

Every cent counts, no matter how small, and we certainly make the ruppee stretch a very long way with the building philosophy of reuse, recycle and reduce.
