EARLY TIMES REPORT
JAMMU, Sep 4:Amid sonorous chants of gayatri matra and rising smoke from the ‘havan kund’, Borderless World Foundation’s home in Jammu, ‘FAH’, celebrated its second anniversary on 4th September 2011, at its premise in Barnai, Jammu. Around 70 people attended the ceremony, including dignitaries such as Major General TSP Waraich and his wife, Head Mistress of Ranjit Memorial Public School Krishna Jamwal, as well neighbours, mothers of few of the kids, supporters and of course, the children and BWF staff.
Rajani Devi, the warden of the home, said, “Last year, we were still quite new to this place, people in the neighborhood barely knew us. This year, we have more children, and also, people around have shown a lot of love and generosity towards us. We are very happy, it seems like one huge family.”
Adhik Kadam, the founder and Chairman of BWF said, “In 1997 when I first came here, I saw a lot of migrant camps in Jammu, not just Kashmiri Pandits but also people from border areas in Jammu region. I witnessed the appalling condition in which people, especially children lived in the camp. They were all surviving, but surviving is different from living..”
Major General Waraich who attended the occasion along with his wife, who took part in the havan, freely interacted with the children and enquired about them. “It is very good to see the kind of work Borderless World Foundation is doing, supporting these young girls and helping them stand on their feet.”
