You've had the plans .... now look at this!!

Just a few days ago we posted news about water and electricity, but now building work has really begun!! Deepak just sent these pictures from India and we will be posting as often as we can now to show you how work is progressing. I know how fast projects progress in India, and think you will all be amazed at what you see in the next few weeks, so PLEASE log in regularly and do tell your friends about The Raven Foundation.
At this rate we'll be up and running early in 2010 - if any of you are planning to visit India on your gap year, we'd be really pleased to see you in Udaipur - and with tourist season just beginning, any of our fans are welcome to visit if in the area. Please contact us and let us know your plans and we can show you the site.

Hope you'll log in regularly because each day will bring change for the Foundation.... so watch this space.
Best wishes to you all,

Deepak and Charlotte

Plans unveiled ... water and electricity on site!

This is a great day for The Raven Foundation and here is the first picture of how the hospital is going to look! We posted a few weeks ago to let you know that construction has begun on the hospital and are now putting up some more images - there is now water on site and electricity - and once the important Diwali Festival is over, building will begin. We know that to most of you, this still looks like a piece of land with a few holes in the ground, but PLEASE check in when you have time, because there will be many more pictures in the next few weeks!!

New electricity poles (on right)

Boring holes for foundations

Deepak has been working incredibly hard and I wish I could be there with him to help, but I'm staying in the UK for a bit because we have a lot going on here and I'm busy fund-raising. You will start to see progress in the next few weeks and we will post regularly on the blog - Deepak will be taking photographs so you can see how the building is progressing ... so watch this space!
