Feeding the Hungry on the Streets of Calcutta,India

Thank you Sue Berg for Norman’s kind donation of $171 toward feeding 342 blessed souls who are destitute on the streets of Calcutta under Anna Dana Seva (Blessed Food for the Poor Project) through which is our Mission’s exclusive projects website.

It is so heartening to know Norman saved 1 dollar bills towards this humanitarian cause. Norman sets the precedence which we are sure many other generous and compassionate people will follow. Thank you Norman! Thank you, Sue Berg for feeding the hungry!

Garcha Street School Recently Sponsored

Garcha Street school was established by Baba Shuddhaanandaa in the year 1995. The people of Garcha are mainly migrant labourers from neigbouring states doing menial jobs in kolkata and are from lower starta of the society. The mission wants to pull them out of social deprivations. The children are offered training on the practice of hatha yoga, meditation, creative art, dancing apart from literacy.

The initial batches of students from this school were groomed enough to join better schools run by government and private houses. Our task was to create interest in their hearts through fun, playful education and love.

Our experience says what they needed most is for somebody to say they are wonderful children of god and deserve to become worthy citizens of mother India. Love has the power to transform and raise the spirits of each soul to its highest sense of Freedom.

We on behalf of Lokenath divine Life Mission in Calcutta do express our sense of gratitude and thankfulness to Connie Weaver for her generosity and love for these destitute yet smiling children of God.
