EKAM Pittsburgh members Amarnath and Usha’s connection to Sai Lakshmi in 2016 visited Sai in Chennai at her house. We were very inspired by her compassion, divine nature and dedication of her life to help the needy and promote the well-being of the children and the community.
Dr. Sai Lakshmi, founder of EKAM visited Pittsburgh in December 2017 during her first visit to the USA. We were able to invite friends and family who met Sai and were introduced to Ekam. Sai shared her journey including her initial days and the inspiration to start Ekam. The main goal of EKAM “Healthychild, Healthy community” was discussed. During the initial visit we raised $6000 and the funds were used to support Ekam activities in India.
EKAM Pittsburgh chapter was started in April 2018 and so far we’ve had many successful events.
