Support-A-Child Concert


09/21/2017

On Friday, October 6, 2017 at 6pm, Keefe Tech located in Ashland, MA, is the venue for holding Kala Sangam, an evening of entertainment for the noble cause of helping to change the lives of underprivileged children in India. The admission to the event is complimentary. The duo of hasya kavis, Sanjay Jhala and Mahendre Ajnabai are coming specifically from India to perform during the evening to keep the audience riveted to their seats laughing. Not to be outdone, our very best performers from Boston area including Sankar, Aditya, and Swati will be on stage competing for the audience attention during the length of the program.

Support a Child (SAC) program is a flagship project of World Hindu Council of America (VHPA). Since its inception in 1985, the program has helped to provide a good education, housing, nutritious food, and health care to orphan and poverty-stricken children. As a result, thousands of young lives have been changed dramatically for the better with a large number of students successfully completing high school to pursue higher education. Given this opportunity, many of these children are now productive citizens working as teachers, engineers, doctors, and in other professions. In 2016, the support of the community enabled SAC to fund more than 2000 children. The children assisted are located all over India.

A dollar given here goes a long way in India. A $250 tax deductible contribution, less than $1 a day, provides education, housing, and health care for a child for an entire year. The donor gets personal information about the child along with a photograph and a progress report. In case interested, the donor may establish personal rapport and mentor the child. It takes anywhere from 2 to 6 months to get detailed information about the supported child to the donor. The donor is encouraged and welcome to write to and visit the supported child which adds another dimension to the relationship. A contributor may stipulate state specific location in choice of supported child. A sincere effort is made to fulfill this request. Children are normally selected by SAC volunteers from the existing list of schools and hostels run by partner organizations.

Kala Sangam is on Friday, October 6, 2017
AT: Keefe Tech, 750 Winter Street, Framingham, MA 01702
Meet & Greet/Dinner is from: 6:00 PM -7:00 PM
