The event is free and snacks will be served.
IGSA presents Parivarthan, a new initiative that provides you with the
opportunity to watch contemporary and topical documentaries from India
and around the world, while learning about a cause that deserves your
volunteer support and goodwill.
We will start on Feb 10th with the screening of the first part of “The
Story of India”, a much acclaimed BBC and PBS documentary that traces
the 10000 year history of India from the beginning of civilization to
the different spiritual traditions that originated in India to the
various rulers of India all the way to the modern times.
The cause we will showcase for our first meeting is Eureka Child
(http://www.eurekachild.org/), a school education initiative from AID
(Association for India Development). Eureka has been supplementing
Govt schools in over 1000 villages, with evening classes that employ
fun and innovative learning methods. These classes are taught by
educated youth from the same village, providing employment
opportunities for the local community.
The goal of Parivarthan is to form a group of interested people, with
an inclination for educating and entertaining ourselves with topical
documentaries from around the world, while learning about social
causes and initiatives that we can spread the word about.
