Kujaja.com through its philanthropic efforts has been successful in able to raise money for the Ashalayam organisation. The first donation was handed over to Ms. Anna Kaplan, representative of Ashalayam, Germany. She came to Kolkata, India during the last week of January.
Soumya Shankar Ghosal and Anirban Mukhopadhyay, representatives of Kujaja.com from Kolkata, India had met her along with the Director of Ashalayam at Kadamtala, Howrah, Head Office of Ashalayam India to co-ordinate their visit to the Kalyani premises which houses about 80 Children. Soumya, Anirban and Anna visited Kalyani on 1st March, 2014. Kalyani is located about 50 kms away from Kolkata.
Meeting the children was a wonderful experience. Their stay there was for approximately 4 hours. It being a Saturday, it was a half day for the children at school. They spent the day enjoying themselves in various fun activities like giving reply to the letter from their German friends and playing among themselves. At the end of the day, as a token of appreciation Candies were distributed to the children on behalf of Kujaja.
Soumya and Anirban has successfully coordinated a Photo Shoot for the 2015 Calendar and Picture Post Cards to be published by Ashalayam Germany with the objective of raising Funds for Ashalayam India. Please visit - http://www.donboscoashalayam.org/ for more information.

You can buy their photos later this year as a 2015 calander which will be made by the Ashalayam Germany organisation (all profits go to the Ashalayam Kolkata).
I know it was hard to get the appointment and you had to go through a lot of obstacle to be able to visit the children.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH SOUYMA AND ANIRBAN!!!!
