Round Table Meeting In Atlanta
A delegation from Round Table India (RTI) visited Atlanta on December 4 and 5, as part of its "Road Show USA- Freedom Through Education"- a tour of US cities. Round Table is an organization of non-political and non-sectarian young men between the age group of 18 and 40. The aim of the young men is to promote service, fellowship and goodwill in National and International affairs.
A unique feature of this organization is that it always remains young, because the Tablers retire when they turn 40, giving way to younger people.
The Atlanta meeting was third in a tour of several US cities including New York, Boston, Los Angeles, Seattle and San Jose/ Bay area. The delegation consisted of three board members of Round Table India, and was headed by Girish Ramanathan (national president), accompanied by R. Dhirendra (Past national President and Harikiran Valdamani (National Fund Raising Committee).
The delegation was able to interact with philanthropists, charitable, cultural and social organizations, supporting and doing the kind of work RTI is involved with. Their aim was to meet and interact with people, to apprise them of the activities of RTI, especially their project Freedom Through Education. The delegation was satisfied with the response to their mission.
Freedom Through Education is a project that reaches out to underprivileged children, providing basic infrastructure for primary education in rural India. It has reached out to about one million children over a period of five years.
