New Year Gift Festival 2020

Another yearly gift distribution completed!!! Dear FFLV friends and supporters, we want to express our gratitude for all your donations towards the New Year Gift Festival 2020. It was an extreme winter this year and after a long delay due to school closures, we have now successfully completed the yearly distribution of 5000 gift bags for the girls at Sandipani Muni School and the rest of the school in the nearby villages.

Georgetown University visited FFLV

On the 4th of January, we had the privilege to receive a visit from a few students and professors from Georgetown University which is a leading research university based in Washington DC, USA. Their visit started with a tour of our Sandipani Muni schools accompanied by our team members in order for them to understand more about the projects FFLV has been undergoing. Moreover, a seminar was conducted which was focused on environmental contamination and prejudices, specifically focusing on Yamuna river pollution where a few students and teachers from SMS, FFLV office staff and visitors from Georgetown university took part.

Over 300 blankets distributed….

At this time of extreme winter in Vrindavan, it’s a blessing for the underprivileged children to receive a blanket knitted with love and compassion. This initiative was called Knitathon 2018-2019 in which the world’s largest blanket of 3949 square meters was knitted with the help of a huge team of over 400 volunteers from 26 different nationalities living in UAE. The blanket was comprised of over 3200 smaller blankets with a hand-written heart placed on each to symbolize the warmth of love. These blankets were then distributed to poor children worldwide, proving that small efforts can make a massive impact. More than 300 blankets were donated and distributed to the girls at Sandipani Muni School, girls who have a single parent or whose parents earning is almost next to nothing. The gifts were received with lots of appreciation from families who cannot afford any winter clothes. We are grateful to […]
