In the realm of philanthropy, there are individuals whose commitment to service shines brightly, illuminating paths of hope and opportunity for those in need. Among these luminaries stands Vandita Parikh, a beacon of compassion, and Nrutya Shakthi, a bastion of artistic excellence. As OSAAT (One Student At A Time), we are deeply honored and profoundly grateful for Vandita Ji and her dedicated students’ unwavering support and extraordinary efforts.

Through their passion for dance, they embarked on a noble mission to raise funds for underprivileged children, weaving threads of hope and inspiration into the fabric of our community.

Words cannot adequately express our gratitude for the remarkable success of the workshop. With their boundless creativity and unwavering dedication, Vandita Ji and her students raised an astounding $2740. This generous sum will enable us to provide educational materials, healthcare support, and nutritious meals to underprivileged children, opening doors to education and opportunities that were once beyond reach.

Yet, beyond the monetary value lies the profound impact of inclusivity and cultural celebration fostered by Vandita Ji and Nrutya Shakthi. The workshop welcomed children from diverse backgrounds, each with their unique story and journey. It offered them a glimpse into the vibrant tapestry of Indian folk dances and culture, sparking a newfound passion and hope. Through dance, barriers were broken, hearts were united, and dreams were ignited.
