South Asian American Leaders of Tomorrow, or SAALT is sponsoring the Fourth Annual National Gandhi Day Of Serivce. If you live in the Bay area, contact Subha Varadarajan to register for the October 2 event.
From the SAALT website, here are some reasons why you should get involved:
The National Gandhi Day of Service perpetuates the legacy of Mohandas K. Gandhi, who spent much of his life the least fortunate members of his community through tireless service.
The collective efforts of local Gandhi Day projects provides a vehicle for unity in the South Asian community while sending a message that we are contributing members of American society.
Gandhi Day provides an opportunity to give back for the many successes and opportunities that we have been afforded as immigrants.
It is a fun activity for members of your organization to come together, do something positive for your neighborhood, and become a part of a rewarding national movement.
