The Ekam Baton Rouge chapter is a group of students inspired by Ekam’s work to help the underprivileged children and women, as well as help people in need during times of crisis. Our goal is to support and empower local communities. Our chapter has initiated several fund raising activities to support our adopted district in India, such as giving life-saving equipment to hospitals during COVID-19, as well as local causes, such as fundraising for the Baton Rouge food bank. Our Ekam Youth Ambassadors (EYAs have taken initiative to create and drive these service projects. EYAs have participated in workshops and are actively involved in internal meetings and decision making. Scroll down to learn more about EKAM Baton Rouge and our projects.
