We have two main goals for this fundraising event. First, we want to create awareness and connect the local global communities.  The local community here in the twin cities, particularly young students will have a unique opportunity to understand and explore a part of the world that is not often in the limelight. Our other goal is to raise funds for two organizations in Assam, India. The two organizations are Raastriya Gramin Vikas Nidhi (www.rgvnidhi.org) and Fertile Ground: East/West Sustainability Network. Bothorganizations are at the forefront of capacity building, development, and empowerment of vulnerable and marginalized groups, particularly women and poor farmers in Assam, India.

The funds from this event will continue to support the issue that RGVN has been working with which is developing entrepreneurial and self-sufficiency skills among groups of very poor traditional weaver community women. These women have excellent traditional skills sets of weaving fine textures and artifacts, yet because of their lack of access to credit and market, they are not able to make gainful livelihoods out of their skills.. RGVN has made impressive ground work in helping these women organize into self-help groups, and any funds they receive will help them in creating other capacity building skills, marketing issues etc. 

Our goal this year is to raise $6,000.00.  We are on our way to meet this goal but we need your help!  Please help with what ever amount you desire.  Every cent helps!

Thank you!
