Two Day Picnic:
It was a wonderful day for many of our children. They never had chance to go out in a tourist place. We at Asha Deepa decided to take the children outside- a place where they spend their day with joy. Then our teaching staff in consultation with all the children decided to visit Dev-Deva Vana, Bidar Fort and Barid Shahi Garden. All these three are tourist places in Bidar. Just after the mid-term exam, 30 children of Asha Deepa were taken for picnic to these places.
Day-1: Visit to Deva-Deva Vana
We never expected that they will be so happy to sense the outer world. They jumped, played, screamed, cried danced and what not. General public at garden were a mute spectacular. Many of them joined our children in playing kabaddi etc. You can have look at more photos at our Picasa album online at
Day-2: Visit to Bidar Fort:
On second day, children visited Bidar Fort. Bidar Fort is located in the heart of the town and was built by 1428 by Ahmed Shah Bahmani.The fort takes up a high ridge of land which is enclosed by double rings of wall with nearly five Darwazas.A part of this castle is partly carved out of bedrock.

The parents meet was held on 15th of October just a day before Dasara Vocation. A presentation was arranged to show picnic photos. The parents thrilled to see their children jumping, dancing and playing in a open ground. Each child was asked to give a feed back about their picnic tour. The parents were very happy. We felt that taking such outings will boost their level of confidence. Therefore, It was decided to take the children for picnic every month.
Since inception, we depend on donors and supporters like you. We have come so long because of your support, love and care. In future, we want to be self sustain-that means supporting our expenses on our own. Therefore, we are in the process of setting of dairy farm. The income generated from the dairy farm (sale of milk) will be used to support the school operational expenses. Asha already has funded 35 % of the total project cost. Any contribution to this project is greatly appreciated as this enables us to be “self supporting” organization.
Thank you once again for all your support.
