RANA Calgary participates in various charitable and volunteering activities throughout the year. The purpose of these activities is to contribute in various programs in home state of Rajasthan and in Canada. The activities we participate in are:
Banaswara Pariyozana: In Last 2 years (2015 and 2016) we have raised $10,000.00 to help build two elementary schools in the tribal district of Banaswara in the state of Rajasthan. These schools are educating tribal children in remote and underserve parts of Rajasthan and are helping in breaking the cycle of poverty in these areas.
Calgary Interfaith Food Bank: We have raised more than 1000 pounds of food in last 3 years for the food-bank as part of Holi fundraiser. We also volunteer at food bank once every two-month to help make food hampers for citizens of Calgary who have fallen on hard times.
City of Calgary River Pathway Clean-up: We also participate in City of Calgary annual river pathway clean up. We were a part of more than 20,000 volunteers helping to clean our city in the spring.
RANA Calgary’s Diversity Run: For the past 2 years our youth are organizing a charitable run to raise funds for Alberta Children’s Hospital Brain health program. This run is organised to raise awareness for mental health in the community and to help in neuroscience research. In last two years our youth have raised $16,000.00 for Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation. Last year our youth were awarded Heroes award for highest fund raised for a small group. This years run is on August 26 2017.
