On the occasion of the 150th Birth Anniversary Celebration of Swami Vivekananda, we had implemented the Gadadhar Abhyudaya Prakalpa (GAP) – a Project for the Children’s Holistic Development, during October 2010 to September 2014 with the financial assistance of the Ministry of Culture, Govt. of India. There were a total of 174 GAP units which benefitted more than 17,400 underprivileged children from city slums and interior villages in different parts of India. Irrespective of their caste, creed, colour, religion, etc., the project provided an opportunity to these children for their physical, mental, intellectual and spiritual development.
The GAP programme created immense impact on these children, their parents and localities, so much so that the inhabitants of those areas are urging us to continue the project.
