Artists Striving To End Poverty Inc
September 25, 2009
My experience with ASTEP was life changing.
The organization gave me the opportunity to teach at the incredibly important Shanti Bhavan residential school in rural India. The organization provided financial support, training, fund raising assistance, and an incredible amount of inspiration.
I am a professional actor, which gives me the opportunity to work with many charities in a wide variety of settings. The individual attention, self-sacrifice, and dedication that I experienced with the entire ASTEP staff makes this non-profit a shining example of what philanthropy can be.
I will continue my work with ASTEP as a fundraiser, donor, volunteer, and recruiter.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
...universally humble. I've never spent time volunteering with a group of people so willing to offer themselves up to fill whatever role was needed, while still coming from such varied backgrounds.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Volunteer & Resident teacher for about a month in Shant Bhavan.
