Vijf studenten hebben 17 mei een film evenement georganiseerd. De opbrengst, in totaal 166 euro is gegaan naar Tara Projects. Lees hieronder hun verhaal.
We are five exchange students from Great Britain, France, Russia and Spain studying at HAN University. We came up with the idea of doing a movie night called ‘Bombay Night’ with the aim of raising money for Tara Projects to help Indian girl´s education. We also want to raise awareness amongst people about the social and gender inequalities that this country is bounded to.
The event will take place on the 17th of May at HAN University (Arnhem-The Netherlands) and it will consist of the projection of ‘Salaam Bombay’ (an Indian drama-crime film that shows the life struggles that Krishna, Manju, Chillum go through according to social inequalities, poverty and misery). After that we will enjoy an exhibition of letters and paintings from the girls that Tara Projects is working with. They will explain to us what education means to them, what do they want to become in life and how Tara Projects is helping them. In following the theme of the evening we will offer an Indian buffet.
We decided to choose Tara Projects because we felt linked to it and in some way identified with the cause. This is a chance for us to realize how lucky we are to have the education and opportunities that we have. We also choose Tara Projects because we were looking for an association, fundraising that projects in every moment transparency and honesty. When we spoke with Asha Dijkstra, we knew that we founded what we were looking for.
The money we raise will be entirely be donated to Tara Projects to help this cause.
Thanks a lot, Elana, Vijay, Hugo, Michael, Gennady.
