I am the founding Director of Ekam USA, a classmate of Dr. Sai Lakshmi Balijepally. I was inspired by the need in India for mother and child health care, and the unique approach taken by Sai for lasting change in the patients and the community. Her altruistic work and the commitment of Ekam volunteers and staff continues to motivate me, as do our youth ambassadors.
We are proud to be able to send almost 100% of your donation towards the projects done by Ekam, with minimal admin cost (<1% in 2020), thanks to the dedicated volunteers that work for Ekam. Our Chapter Directors are men and women from all walks of life, who have joined our efforts to help those in need, while engaging youth in service activities and connecting donors with the cause. Our youth ambassadors spend time and come up with creative ideas for service and fundraising, continuously inspiring the rest of us.
All the lives saved in India, disease prevented, communities empowered, covid recovery, relief and rehabilitation work now in progress is with the support of our donors, who support us constantly.
