The Anganwadi Project is a not for profit project and all the team members and volunteers give their time and expertise voluntarily and free of charge.
The project is only possible through the financial contributions from companies but also private individuals who generously donate from their own pocket. From these donations, The Angwanwadi Project has been able to set up an on-going program to send volunteers to work on re-building all 66 anganwadi in the slum areas. Thank you to all the many people who have donated to The Anganwadi Project as well as directly to our Volunteers to help them get there, you know who you are. Without your continued support, this project would not be possible.
If you want to become an official sponsor or would like to fundraise for our cause, email us, we would be thrilled to hear from you!
Total Balance Group was founded in early 2002 by Kate James. Kate’s vision was to create a boutique coaching and training organisation, offering a range of programs that specifically help people to achieve their objectives while finding fulfillment in both their personal and professional lives. Total Balance now has a team of associates who provide face to face coaching in Melbourne and Sydney.
Kate generously donated to The Anganwandi Project in 2009 and the funds are being used for the start of Bholu 8 which will been seen as a prototype for ongoing construction and design for future anganwadis. Bholu 8 has a lot more detail of the architectural details of sustainable techniques to decrease heat, increase airflow and recycling of rain water. Thank you Kate and all at Total Balance, for your support in our project.

Great Lengths stands on a strong reputation built on quality. Our journey in Australia began in 1992 when Robert Aubin became the Great Lengths Hair Extensions Australian distributor. Through the 1990’s Great Lengths hair extensions steadfastly secured a strong reputation as the market leader in hair extensions by providing premium quality products and advanced patented bonding techniques. In 1995, Great Lengths hair extensions first entered into New Zealand and has since then become a pioneer of the trade.
The foundation of the Great Lengths mission is to source, treat and supply 100% human hair extensions of the highest quality in an ethical manner. In fact, Great Lengths is still the only hair extension company that controls all elements of its business from sourcing through to manufacture. All hair is 100% human and sourced from Indian temples where hair has been donated by devotees as a sacrifice to their gods. It is guaranteed to be 100% ethical and 100% traceable.
This virgin remy hair (meaning all strands lay the same way, from root to tip) then goes to the Great Lengths factory in Italy where it is transformed into the luxurious extensions that are shipped to prestigious salons globally. The proceeds made from the temple hair auctions are reinvested back into the local community in India to provide funding for schools, hospitals and orphanages.
Great Lengths are our principle sponsor for Bholu 10. Thank you!!
