The Foundation connects the diaspora with their roots in a way that positively impacts millions of lives
Over 200 people came together at Newcastle Golf Club in Seattle, Washington to celebrate Vaisakhi, or the coming of spring,Â earlier this week.
The RoundGlass Foundation, a global non-profit organization doing transformative work in over 1,500 villages in Punjab, hosted the event to assemble a community of support and invite everyone present to get involved in their own way.
RoundGlass Foundationâ€™s founder, Sunny Singh spoke of how proud he was of the Foundation team in India who are making amazing strides towards building a better Punjab.
He challenged the audience to imagine a Punjab in which all children receive a quality education, all women are independent and financially literate, and every citizen gets to live in a thriving, green environment. This is the future RoundGlass Foundation is striving to create.
Sunny also highlighted the importance of the audience and the larger Punjabi diaspora getting involved in the Foundationâ€™s work. Without their continued support, it will be impossible to pass this good work on to future generations.
RoundGlass Foundation provides the diaspora and others interested in their mission, particularly young people, a chance to get connected with their roots in a way that positively impacts millions of lives.
Another highlight was a video from the ground in Punjab, showcasing the work happening in the villages and some of the Foundationâ€™s many beneficiaries.
After the video, RoundGlass Foundation Advisory Council Member Tina Subherwal told the audience how she had gotten involved with the Foundation and why it had become such an important part of her and her familiesâ€™ lives.
The overarching message of the event is that anyone can get involved in RoundGlass Foundationâ€™s work in a way that makes sense for them.
Whether it be volunteering on the ground in Punjab, helping at events such as this one, donating, or just sharing information on social media, there is no involvement too small.
â€œFridayâ€™s event is just the beginning,â€ said one of the event organizers Krystal Bronson, â€œwe look forward to inviting this community back for many more such events, and replicating this atmosphere for other communities that support our work all over the world. Thank you so much to everyone that came out, and we will see you soon!â€
