Lisa’s Period Project

In the month of April, we had the pleasure of having Lisa with her friend Kiersten visit our school from the USA. She is an actress and volunteer at FFLV. She believes every girl deserves an education, yet millions of girls around the world miss school during their periods because they can’t afford pads. She teamed up with Days for Girls, an organization that provides a safe, beautiful, washable, and long-lasting alternative reusable pad, along with teaching vital health education to girls. She taught the students about feminine hygiene, helping them understand their bodies as they go through puberty with confidence and distributed around 700 kits to all the FFLV females(which include students, teachers, and maids).She started with a  #gofundme page to raise money to collect all 705 kits and bring them all the way to Vrindavan. The girls were so happy, confident and grateful to them for the love […]

Important Message for all our friends in the USA: Care for Vrindavan is now FFLV USA

Dear Friends, Food For Life Vrindavan started a new academic school year on April 1st. In March, our previous 12th Grade students left school to pursue their dreams and ambitions. These strong young women would not have had those dreams or ambitions if you would not have been such a loyal support to us. Thank you for all your help; it means the world to all our students and to the whole FFLV team.  There is some very important information that requires your attention and possible action. Our Care for Vrindavan office in Saratoga Springs will be closed in the near future. Kurt Mausert, President of Care for Vrindavan, and his team have done an incredible service to FFLV for 12 years. Kim Wilson has worked tirelessly for us, assisted by Kathleen. As the workload has increased substantially there is need for change. We are eternally grateful for all they have […]

SMS GIRLS PARTICIPATED AT THE INTERNATIONAL VAISHNAVI RETREAT IN GOVARDHANA

For the second year in a row, a selected group of 9 girls from Sandipani Muni School joined the special event in Govardhana called “VAISHNAVI RETREAT” from 28th March 2019 to 2nd April 2019. All of them were so happy and particularly interested in spending a few days in the company of other spiritually inclined ladies.  The aim of the event, launched ten years ago, is to facilitate spiritual association among women in bhakti. Focused on hearing and chanting, it offers a wonderful opportunity to females from all over the world who are eager for Sadhu-Sanga. The program is enhanced by the participation of many disciples of Srila Prabhupada, who for some of them was their spiritual masters. The theme for this year was “Cooking and honoring prasadam”. Several workshops were held like “The art of cooking for Lord Krishna”, “Teaching Bhoga offering”, etc. The event also includes narrating stories […]
