Press Release

It was a cold winter evening but that didn’t faint the spirits of those who believe in the cause and stand united for it as Ekal Vidyalaya family. On Nov 22nd , 2008, Ekal New England organized an Ekal Sangeet Sandhya, an evening of musical melodies with dinner to appreciate donors from year 2007. The evening began with socializing over dinner @ the Holiday Inn near Boston, MA followed by a heartening performance of Indian classical music by the distinguished member of LearnQuest academy – Dr. Nishikant Sonwalkar, Preeti Chakravarty and Sadhna Upadhyay. Thereafter, the Master of Ceremonies, Atul Kabra, set the audience into an Ekal journey emphasizing on its aims to help eradicate illiteracy from rural and tribal India by showing Ekal videos of the cause we unite for and the work that is being done in India. Ekal volunteer Hemant Sapre walked the audience, along with a presentation, through latest updates on Ekal Vidyalaya and the difference it is making in the regions that has been ignored by most of the government and non-government organizations.
