We would like to thank Maharashtra Mandal Netherlands (MMNL) for providing us the opportunity to present to the audience information related to social and charitable activities performed by Aadhaar4u. MMNL organised Ganeshotsav 2017 on 9th September 2017 in Hoofddorp. We were allotted presentation time and table space for promotional activity and sell greeting cards to gather funds for the Project Blue.

Mr. Amit Rode presented Aadhaar4U – Project Blue during the event with project presentation on the background. The other volunteers, Anuya Rode, Avinash Kale, Sonali Kale and Girish Thakur created awareness and collected funds for the project by selling greeting cards.

Good Evening,

I would like to start with thanking Maharashtra Mandal Netherlands for extending this opportunity today and allowing to share with all of you information related to social and charitable activities performed by an Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), Aadhaar4u.

It all started in the year 2006, when Aadhaar4u was registered as a charitable foundation in The Netherlands. Our beloved Late Capt. Balu Bapat was instrumental in providing all necessary guidance and support to Aadhaar4U since its inception. Till now Aadhaar4U has completed 8 projects for various charity organisation, focusing on up-liftmen of socially deprived and underprivileged people in remote areas of Maharashtra, India.

Today I am here with you to provide a brief on our ongoing project “Project Blue”, for which we are raising funds now almost for a year. Together with NAAM foundation, Aadhaar4u is committed to build one drinking water plant (RO), solid waste management and waste water management for the whole village “Kutub-Kheda” costing Euro 15,000. The village “Kutub-Kheda” is a remote village in draught hit Marathawada region in the state of Maharashtra. NAAM foundation founded by Mr. Nana Patekar and Mr. Makarand Anaspure has blessed Aadhaar4U by appointing it as the continental Europe representative of NAAM foundation.

With help from generous donations received from people like you, we are almost there and currently are short of around 1100 euro to reach our target. Please feel free to visit our desk at the entrance for more information.

Today we are selling greeting cards made by cured leprosy friends and socially handicapped friends who have made Anandwan as their home for life! Aadhaar4u is proud to be closely working with Anandwan, one of the charity organisations working in remote places of Maharashtra, and is honoured to be closely associated with the Amte family, Late Dr. Baba Amte, Dr. Vikas Amte and Dr. Prakash Amte and their relentless social work.
