We have completed eight years at Persistent Foundation! Eight successful years of hardwork dedication commitment and wonderful accomplishments. It gives me personally agreat sense of satisfaction and gratitude along with pride in our work. The Foundationteam has worked tirelessly and sincerely to fulfil the goals and targets for this year.Their efforts are truly to be applauded and appreciated.
The highlight of this year has been yet another successful installation of a RooftopSolar Power plant at the Nampalli Railway Station in Hyderabad. This has been highlypublicized and much appreciated by the Railways. It is our small contribution towardsusing renewable sources of energy and helping the planet conserve its natural resourcesand thus leave it in a good state for the future generations.
The projects being executed under the Jalyukt Shivar Yojana are going strong even thisyear. We have helped dig more wells de-silt more streams widen more canals and constructmore bunds. All with the objective of conserving water and making it available tovillagers farmers and animals for a longer period even in summer.
Our ongoing initiatives of infrastructure improvement in schools study centresrefurbishment of libraries and laboratories is also yielding progress in the academic
performance of the children. The Girls' Scholarship Program is going on very well. Wehave created a family of 165 bright young girls and are enlightened by their ambition andpersistence to pursue their dreams and make something of their lives. Interactions withthem are always fun and eye-opening experiences.
Our passion for the New Financial Year is to help conduct cleft lip and cleft palatesurgeries for little children. We have taken up this cause as a mission where we wouldlike to help each child overcome this minor disfigurement and ensure that he is able tolive a normal life.
