Lots of Laughter. 

The Support of the Kotgarh community.

Thanks to Vidhoo. The Pradhan and Prakash Thakur for your support. Without your support this seed would not even get a moment.

2 Beautiful walls that now passerby's can admire and
the children can be proud of. 

People would never sit under the bus shelter before because it was Shabby. NOW most of the local gatherings happen at the bus shelter. It has become a focus point. of the village. People now sit under it with Pride. Job well Done!  Thanks SENKOE ONE for being a monkey and rolling with the punches and sharing in our vision. Your work has truly helped and hopefully begun to inspire a community that never thought art could be a bridge for transformation or even a career.
