Our D.C chapter came into existence with volunteers getting together from Maryland and Virginia. Some were introduced through old volunteers while others heard of the cause and expressed a willingness to join. Their first success in fundraising came from Sangam- a musical extravaganza organized in 2014. A popular show, it paved the way for future events and fundraisers. The team has been striving to regularly support SEF through different activities. They are working to develop a student internship program, that will not only help students volunteer for a cause, but also learn critical life skills. This program will simultaneously develop a mentor program, that will help these students navigate challenges in college, and employment. It will also help build a community of young supporters with a hisotry of community service and they will continue to contribute to the socities in which they live.
