Boise India Nite

 Welcome to AID Boise India Nite 2019!
Timberline High School, Saturday, November 16, 2019, 4.30 p.m. – 8.30 p.m.

AID Boise India Nite is our annual fall celebration that brings together Indian culture, dance and food in one place, all for a good cause.

Proceeds from our events support grassroots organizations in India working in various spheres such as education, livelihoods, natural resources including land, water and energy, agriculture, health, women’s empowerment and social justice.

Here are our ongoing projects that your support today will help empower further.

Hostel for rural children
Panshet, Maharashtra
For the last 25 years, Rachana NGO volunteers have worked in the hilly areas of the Western Ghats to promote education and health. The hostel for children going to middle and high school run by Rachana goes a long way in reducing school dropout rates. Nearly 95% of children, availing the hostel facility, graduate through high school. Since 2012, AID Boise has supported the hostel facility for 85 children as a sustained effort to make a difference in the lives of these children.

Vasantshala by Bhasha Research & Publication Center
Vadodara, Gujarat
Vasantshala is an early childhood school specializing in bridge schooling through the mother tongue. Working with the Adivasi and tribal children in Gujrat, it provides space for children to develop pride in their oral traditions, languages and culture, without restricting them to their own mother tongues, and allowing them to move over to the language requirements of formal schooling.

Peace and Equality Cell
The project aims to build capacity and empower the local communities in creating a violence-free environment for their children by equipping them with the necessary knowledge and tools to not only report crimes of sexual violence, but also access all the support and legal services available under the existing legislation for most marginalized children. With AID support, PEC has made an impact on increasing awareness of child sexual abuse and highlighting the gaps in implementation of legislation and focusing on the social and cultural issue of silence around child sexual abuse.

Jharkhand Vikas Parishad
JVP works with indigenous tribes to empower them through education. Community and capacity building, rights awareness, empowering women through health and nutrition education and building livelihoods are JVP’s primary focus areas. Their programs and training have helped farmers generate additional revenue and strengthened participation of women in gram sabhas. Their work with adolescent girls has equipped them knowledge, skills and peer groupsupport to protect themselves from violence, exploitation and child marriage.
