Ray of Light in the COVID-19 Crisis - Nikhil's fundraiser for Vibha
Fundraising for A Ray of Light in the COVID-19 Crisis
Vibha - A Ray of Light – continues to bring brightness in these challenging times ! Through our partner projects in India, we are providing immediate food assistance to migrant laborers and their families. We have given all of our 25 grassroots partners in India a steadfast commitment to continue funding salaries for their teachers and field staff through this pandemic. All our partner projects are actively participating in the COVID-19 relief efforts while staying safe by adhering to Government regulations.
We will continue to focus on education as soon as the schools open up in India after the COVID-19 situation improves. In times like this, access to Digital tools and programs has become evident. We recently delivered 50 laptops and funded 130 chrome books for children from low income refugee families in Atlanta.
Keeping the safety of each and every volunteer, donor and participants, we have cancelled all of our fundraising events – The Dream Mile, Vibe, Cricket Tournaments, concerts and many more. But the needs of our beneficiaries have increased during these times.
We absolutely need your support now! More than Ever !!
