Free Cycle Distribution at FFLV

As a part of providing free transportation to our girls so that they can easily come to school, last month we donated  free bicycles to some of those living in far off areas where  bullock carts and buses have no access to pick them up and bring them to school.

Some of the girls immediately dropped into their meditation and woke up with prophetic statements. One girl even said, “I felt like I was floating through space.” While another told me she dreamt that she was floating in an ocean as […]

Friday 29th June and an unusually sweltering evening in London, FFLV UK held a fundraising dinner in order to enroll more girls into our schools.The event was held at the prestigious Stockley Park Pavillion, and was a sell out success with many disappointed that they could not get tickets.   The evening was inspired by the ongoing campaign – #SheMustCount – which was launched by FFLV last year with a series of specially commissioned films highlighting the tremendous work of our charity .     In attendance was Bollywood superstar and Philanthropist Vivek Oberoi who extended his stay in London so he could fully support the event and UK Film & TV Actor Nitin Ganatra who took a break from Filming to attend. Both spoke highly of their personal support of the charity and urged the audience to pledge in becoming a sponsor.
