book drive update

[readermail]
Hi Pamela,

Thanks for the successful book drive you had for Asha For Education, particularly the Kancheepuram District school children affected by the Tsunami.

The funds have been sent to the concerned district Asha grass roots volunteers and work has already started. The first 10 village children have received the back to school educational materials and are in school currently. Work is in progress to provide for all the children (2400) in the district. I will provide you with all the details in an excel file with the names of the villages and children in a couple of days.

Once again, I wanted to thank you for raising funds for all the children in such a short time.

Thanks,
Chandrika
Asha-Portland
