FOCUSS AREA

Economic opportunity for seniors:  Our goal is to promote the dignity, health, independence and economic security of senior citizens. With this goal in view we give opportunity to seniors to render community service and compensate them to meet their out of packet expenses. We arrange trips to promote a spirit of camaraderie.   We conducted a retreat at Pocono Mountains, a cruise to Bahamas and a day time lunch cruise. We meet every third Monday at the East Brunswick Public Library to plan the events and to interact with seniors from various townships.

Education: Our goal is:

  • To provide an opportunity for students to apply creativity and critical thought to the solution of science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) problems beyond the confines of the classroom,

  • To recognize the students for their talent,

  • To enhance and improve competences in youth outcomes and academic and social skill development, and

  • To provide volunteering opportunities, making Middlesex County a livable community.

 

With this end in view, we have formed a service project ”NBTIndia” and conduct India Republic Day, India Independence Day and Science Symposium in North Brunswick partnering with the North Brunswick Township Public Schools.

 

We recruit student volunteers from Middle & High Schools and conduct Cross Age Mentoring Program for the benefit of Elementary and Middle School children of Monroe Township.

 

Environmental Stewardship: To create awareness among students, we partner with Clean Ocean Action and conduct Beach Sweeps twice a year.

 

Healthy Futures: We partner with South Asian Americans Total Health Initiative (SAATHI) and conduct various educational programs to create awareness especially among seniors on Stroke. We partner with the Cancer Institute of New Jersey and conduct various programs involving community members.

Awareness and Prevention of Childhood Cancers: According to American Cancer Society, about 10,270 children in the United States under the age of 15 were diagnosed with cancer in 2017.Childhood cancer rates have been raising slightly for the past few decades.

 

After accidents, cancer is the second leading cause of death in children ages 1 to 14.
