It is my pleasure to write about this wonderful nonprofit in Millville, NJ. In the year 2006, I attended their first Indian Cultural Dance night, Navaratri and was very much impressed with the team. Most of the organizers were fresh, new to the community organization but with lots of enthusiasm. I immediately decided to join with them. Since then I have served on various positions on the board. The best thing about this non profit is that everyone is a 100% volunteer in this organization. Not a single penny is being spent as a salary or for any kind of expenses for the board members.
The main objective of FOIS is to preserve and promote rich Indian culture in the South Jersey region. We are very successful in this through our annual Kite and Color Festival and Navaratri. The Kite and Color Festival has grown from 250 to 1800 participants in just 7 years. The Navaratri event has also grown to more than 500 participants. The most important thing is that the participants are from all walks of life and of different ethnicity and sexes.
Apart from this, we also have our Sunday school called " Sanskaar" which means the Values in Hindi, a national language of India. We have adopted a park in Vineland through Sanskaar. Our members clean this park quarterly. We also conduct Winter Coats and Food Donation Drive for local Salvation Army every year thus instill a sense of Good citizenship into our younger generation.
Another highlight of our activities is "Project Book-Bag". Every year we sponsor 600-700 book bags to under privileged students in Mumbai, India.
