We celebrated the 9th anniversary of Building blocks, combining it with the Children’s Day which falls on the 14th of November in India. All the schools gathered at Primus School in Bangalore, who very graciously accepted our request to conduct our program in their auditorium and school grounds.

All of the 744 children, from all the 6 learning centers were given a gift, by the funds raised via Indiegogo and funds received by the Noble Cause Club and The AlphaBet Club.
