Dear IASB members,

Thank You! for being an ongoing supporter and invaluable member of the Indian Association of Shreveport-Bossier (IASB). Through patrons like you by our side, the IASB has been able to host several fundraising events in the past, allowing us to reach our goals and thereby contribute effectively to the local community.

This year, however, the calling comes from our heartland- India. The devastating wave of the Covid-19 pandemic has critically scarred the lives of our people, families and kids in India. The constant death announcements and pleas for help from loved ones has prompted some of our very own kids to come forward and help India.

Couple of our elementary kids came up with the idea of a FUN(D)RAISER!!! Thus, in collaboration with IASB and LSUS India Studies, a summer carnival fundraiser “FOR THE KIDS, BY THE KIDS” is being organized.

This carnival will be primarily driven by our kids to help support the needs of kids affected by the Covid crisis in India. Proceeds collected will be donated to Pratham USA, one of the world’s largest NGOs furthering educational needs for the underprivileged children in India affected by the pandemic.
