"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." - Martin Luther King Jr.
"Joys of Giving" is a nonprofit started by Vanesha Hari and Varshini Hari in 2016, with a mission of bringing quality and relevant education to anyone in need. However during the recent pandemic, they discovered there is also an emerging issue of children on school reduced lunch plans and youth at homeless shelters who lack access to meals. If kids don't know where their next meal will come from, how can they possibly focus on education and skills?
Joys of Giving has a unique vision of contributing to both, fighting youth hunger and bringing educational equity. They imagine a world in which every child has equal access to education and technology and do not go hungry to bed. They organize fundraisers and volunteer their skills and time with outreach activities and workshops. Education and having access to a meal should be a basic right and not a privilege! When we have the privilege, we strongly believe there is also a civic responsibility to help others around us.
COVID-19 Fundraiser: Raised ~$5,000 thus far with various fundraisers/workshops to help local nonprofits that support our vision.
