Review for Udavum Karangal Of Usa, Bedford, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I will have to admit my motives, when I first volunteered for UKSF, were purely selfish! As someone new to the bay area I was looking for avenues to meet people- so when someone mentioned they needed a person for a fashion show – I eagerly agreed. On my first day of 'rehearsal' I was surprised to find, behind closed doors on the quiet streets of Saratoga, different groups of people – singing , dancing and walking to different Indian songs. Although, I didn't know anyone there I found the group to be very friendly and welcoming – in fact, so much so that I volunteered to be in another walk. Sparing the details of a very fun filled enjoyable journey – I will tell you that being a volunteer for Udavum Karangal SF is above everything- FUN! But let it not be said that Udavum Karangal SF never fails to forgot or remind its volunteers, that the motivation for the fun is to help a very serious cause. Through its various events and volunteers, UKSF has assisted with the sponsorship of numerous children and projects – including the purchase of a vehicle, computers and medical equipment. Being able to be a part of an organization that helps those in need in a way that is enjoyable – made me sign up year 2!! For those of you thinking about volunteering for a charity, wanting to meet new people or even if you just simply want to be part of a fantastic stage production – UKSF is a great place to meet fun people, be creative, and last, but not least, help those who most definitely need your help. I'm very glad I got 'roped' in 3 years ago - UKSF has helped me meet a lot of wonderful people and allowed me to contribute to a great cause!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Has allowed me to meet a lot of creative and dedicated people

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Sincere and from all walks of life

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Educate a LOT of children and break the cycle of poverty.
