The kids from TASP and EKATVA come together with music and laughter this past May.
Compassionate Chefs has a long tradition of helping kids both across the street in the Tenderloin District of San Francisco and across the ocean in the Gandhi Ashram of Ahmedabad. This year we achieved one of our long-term goals of helping less fortunate kids become citizens of the world by bringing kids from India to the United States.
Sixteen kids from the slums of Ahmedabad got to tour America, perform before thousands of people and meet kids from the Ternderloin After School Program right here in San Francisco. This was a goal Compassionate Chefs had set from the very beginning and we were thrilled to reach it with your help.
Our next project is to send kids from San Francisco to Ahmedabad. We have a date of late 2014 as our goal and the fundraising begins right now. As always, 100% of money raised goes to the kids, with nothing held back for expenses and all donations are tax deductable. We are grateful for your continuing support.
Across The Street
The Tenderloin After School Program was created to give the kids of the Tenderloin a safe place to be after school while their parents worked. They provide snacks, homework help, activities and other support to over 200 children.
TASP is proud of their first class of “graduates” – kids who have been in the program and are now entering college, some are the first in their families to attend. To learn more about the Tenderloin After School Program, visit their website.
The kids head to New Delhi Restaurant for lunch and lots of dancing.
Across the Ocean
More dancing and proof that hiphop is the universal language of kids.
About 1 out of every 6 human beings on this planet lives in a third world slum. Slum life has many challenges including heavy population density, poor infrastructure, low income, illiteracy, scarcity of food, and a diverse array of health and sanitation issues, amongst the many others.
The EKATVA children are ambassadors of the potential and spirit of those 1 billion human beings around the globe who must constantly struggle to overcome difficulties and challenges that arise from their lack of resources. But yet there is hope.
Through this journey we hope to spread seeds of goodness and compassion throughout the world and inspire our global citizens to serve and care for those in need. More about EKATVA.
