The EKAM Atlanta Chapter was founded in October 2016, with the mission to support underprivileged women and children in India and throughout local communities.
Inspired by Dr.Sai’s visit, our EYA program was started in April 2019, with the goal of empowering youth to volunteer in local communities, with adequate support from their parents, helping build a healthy relationship.
Our EYA (Ekam Youth Ambassadors) are the backbone of our chapter and actively lead, plan and participate in various community service projects and fundraisers. Our chapter’s mission is to do our best to help communities strive and sustain locally and globally.
Our adopted district: Dindigul, Tamil Nadu, India.
In 2020 Ekam Atlanta has raised over 3000 dollars for SWBI initiatives in India, to support activities in our adopted district, Dindigul, Tamilnadu, India. Ekam Atlanta also raised 2500 dollars for covid relief in the USA and India. These funds are utilized to buy new PPE for senior citizen care centers in the USA and to support farmers and migration workers in India.
