During December 2017 AIA hosted an Alternative Gift Fair at the WHCC. We sold attractive photo cards that would purchase education for the Siddi students in the villages in India. There were different card value amounts that would cover the cost of various educational levels. Most cards bought will cover the cost of books, school fees, and incidental expenses for grade school students. Cards were also sold that will cover the cost for vocational training and college scholarships for one year.
The alternative gift fair was a wonderful success for our organization and with the money raised we are going to be able to help over 200 Siddi children and students in Karnataka, India.
