Community Service

"Enrich the lives of the less fortunate." - Pujya Shri Mathioli Saraswathy

Nandalala Mission was founded on the principles of enriching the lives of those around us. With that in mind, most of our programs are service oriented, by giving children a hands-on opportunity to be involved in the act of giving. Organizers lead activities in meal packing, cooking at homeless shelters, delivering lunch sacks; where children actively participate in preparation, serving, and delivering the food. Kids who have grown up in the program lead the younger ones in a spirit of role modeling while learning valuable life skills and giving back to the community!
