December 8: Save the date for a Bollywood Dance Party

Bollywood Dance Party!

This project is to complete the full circle of the Ekatva journey.
Our goal is to take 16 kids and five chaperons from TASP to visit the kids of Ekatva at the Gandhi Ashram in Ahmedabad, India in 2015- 2016. Compassionate Chefs Cafe has already raised $20,000 towards this project. Our goal is to raise $60,000 this year. With your support and generous donation we will reach much closer to the goal.
We are in constant touch with Nimo from Ekatva to help create an organic process to this journey.
The main idea is to create a greater good objective of the spirit of Global citizenship through a dance-drama program. This will start locally first and grow into a city and state wide effort culminating into a trip to visit our brothers and sisters across the ocean in Gandhi Ashram.
The essence of this project is following the foot steps of Ekatva with guidance from Nimo through Laura, the Program Director of Tenderloin After School Program. ~ Ranjan Dey

Who You’ll Help
The kids head to New Delhi Restaurant for lunch and lots of dancing during their 2012 visit.

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. In 2012, 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 children from the slums of Ahmedabad got to tour America, perform before thousands of people and meet kids from the Tenderloin 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.

This year’s project is to send kids from San Francisco to Ahmedabad. We have a date of 2015-16 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 deductible. We are grateful for your continuing support.

More dancing and proof that hiphop is the universal language of kids.

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: Tenderloin After School Program

Across The Ocean
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.

Aside from simply bringing the children of the Gandhi Ashram to the United States to perform, we also want them to know that we’re happy to see them and to feel the warmth of the audience. To that end, we would like to fill the performance space in Berkeley on May 27th to the rafters.

“Ekatva” is a Sanskrit word for “oneness” or “unity.” In partnership with leading Indian performing arts school Darpana Dance Academy, EKATVA has been an inspiring journey of 16 children from the slums who present a 90-minute dance drama about Mahatma Gandhi’s ideals of strength, peace and of course, oneness.

“The concept of the EKATVA tour is to share with the world the power and potential that exists in our underprivileged communities. The EKATVA children and show are examples of what happens when we provide love and opportunity to the children of our world,” says Nimesh Patel, EKATVA Director and Manav Sadhna volunteer.
