IN GRATITUDE ... contd
Count Arthur Tarnowski, founder of the Take Heart Foundation, UK, has been a close friend of Baba Amte for the last 37 years. Despite the fact that both his legs are polio- affected, the Count embarked upon an expedition around the world, based on which he published a book entitled ‘The Unbeaten Track’. Two chapters of the book were devoted to Anandwan and the work of Baba Amte. All proceeds from the sale of his book were donated by the Count to Anandwan to start House of Oppurtunities (Sandhi Niketan). Tarnowski has visited Anandwan 38 times in the past 36 years and remains one of the pillars of support for the institution.
