NAAIS x Giving Tuesday
As the pandemic continues to affect millions across the world, everyone is scrambling and doing their best to take care of their loved ones. With billions of us practicing social distancing, countries have closed their borders for the safety of their domestic residents.
The side-affect: thousands displaced; the odds against them.
We at NAAIS are the only organization helping Indian students who are stranded and separated from their friends and families, many without access to necessities such as food and housing. Please donate what you can to help these students in this trying time. It would make a huge difference in the lives of those who are separated 8,400 miles from their loved ones.
Our work with Indian students dealing with COVID-19 was covered by NPR, India Today, Al-Jazeera, News 18 and India Today. As of now we have been able to help over 150 students in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis. We have been steadfast and transparent about our organization and initiatives, and were given a Platinum Star Transparency rating from GuideStar.
This #GivingTuesday help NAAIS provide relief to students.
The North American Association of Indian Students (NAAIS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2020. The organization’s mission is to identify, educate, and mobilize students of Indian-origin to foster a thriving community.
North American Association of Indian Students's underlying goal is to get Indian and Indian-American students to mobilize under one umbrella organization. Imagine: a digital and physical community that Indian students can always rely on that hosts events catered to young people and India, and mobilizes 1,000+ college campuses and their Indian organizations. Think about the future as well: we're connecting Indian students and alumni early on, so they can create tangible impact and further the pursuits of the India diaspora around the world.
What we’re doing isn’t new. In fact, we’re an extension of the Indian freedom fighters who started The Hindusthanee Student organization in 1914. We carry on their legacy.
