IN THE YEAR 2000, THE ASSOCIATION HAS BEEN AWARDED THE MERIT CERTIFICATE  BY THE RED & WHITE BRAVERY AWARDS COMMITTEE
FOR SHOWING SOCIAL COURAGE in removing superstitions and creating awareness about Handedness.

Against  many odds, the ASSOCIATION has been able to reach to a large section of the population through the voluntary activities of its members and with the help of various Media-
Over Fifty thousand primary schools in the state of Maharashtra (mostly rural) have been contacted through a Government Agency and the teachers are enlightened about the issue.   A massive survey about Handedness is also launched. This has generated a tremendous response.
Schools in general have started understanding the importance of this issue and are beginning to take interest in our activities.
The State Board of Secondary Education has included a Lesson about the Association in its 9th class textbook.
Lions, Rotary and other such Clubs and organisations invite Association workers to deliver lectures on the topic.
Media attention has been drawn to this issue. Newspapers like The Times of India, Indian Express, Hindu, Mid-Day, Sakal, Loksatta, Rajasthan Patrika, Free Press Journal, many magazines, Radio programmes like Radio Mid-Day and TV programmes like Surabhi, Aankhon Dekhi & TVI Channel have made stories on the Association’s work and its importance.
