Ekal Garba event by Ekal Youth Leaders
Ekal Garba event was celebrated on November 7. It was a magical evening, filled with fun, warmth, and festivities & melodious music. The project was the brainchild of EYL, Manasi Danke, a high school senior from Chelmsford. Her proposal was simple and effective – everyone loves to do garba/dandiya around Navratri, why not dance for a cause! And this cause was really about bringing education to kids in rural India, with Ekal Vidyalayas movement.
Ekal NE team thanked each and every individual who joined for Ekal Garba event and helped bringing education to rural India. They also thanked the students of Eastern Rhythms dance school, which performed at the event and participated in VijayaDashmi pooja.
