Uniforms bring about a sense of belonging, promote harmony and reduce the visible gap between the haves and have not, thus fostering a sense of togetherness. In rural India, where parents are barely able to make ends meet, the burden of providing school uniforms becomes too hard to bear can lead to parents withdrawing children from school. Sensing this overwhelming feeling of the parents, Lioness Club of Udupi-Bannanje, 317 C distributed uniforms to the children of the Anganawadi situated in rural Udupi District - allowing parents to send their children to school without the added burden of providing uniforms. Additionally, children are gifted toys and books for school, adding cheer to the already burdened parents and children.
