We are also looking for donors to support us for purchasing the batteries needed for our power backup system in the computer lab. It would cost around forty thousand rupees. We have a powerful inverter but then the batteries are out of warranty period and not being in a repairable condition, our systems are vulnerable to hardware issues.

Vanavil is built by the support of many many individuals without whom it would have never become a reality. We have been sustained by innumerable individual donors and volunteers. We thank all of our past donors, and hope you’ll continue to support us! So please come and join this happy cheery group by donating money, time or ideas. We value all these equally. Your donations create change.
