6 members from Team Vaave are running at the Airtel Hyderabad Marathon on Aug 20th, 2017 to give the children of Government Upper Primary School, Gowlidoddy, Hyderabad the gift of play. The funds raised from this campaign will be used by Anthill Creations Foundation to build a play ground for the children of this government school.
We believe that good play has a very important role in holistic child growth. With this playground, we want to ensure that even the less privileged kids in our community have fun and access to a beautiful play space.
