The Boise Chapter of the Association for India's Development will be putting on a one-night cultural event that will include many facets of what India has to offer. Attendees are invited to witness a real Indian soiree, complete with traditional dancing, Bollywood boogies, music and authentic Indian food. As a nonprofit organization, AID relies solely on donations in order to achieve its goals. The organization was founded back in 1991 as a volunteer movement working to alleviate poverty in rural India through education and health-related projects. The Boise Chapter was established in 2001 and consists of roughly 20 core volunteers and many supporters.
Since its creation, the Boise Chapter has helped provide prenatal and delivery care for mothers and care for infants in rural Indian villages; established mobile clinical and education services in remote tribal areas; provided food, water, medicine and more. However, the work is never done, and all proceeds from the event will support AID's causes. If you're looking to broaden your horizons or simply enjoy good authentic eats, head down to AID's India Nite 2009 for an evening of cultural celebration and some hip-shaking Bollywood glitz. Tickets can be purchased at both Boise Co-op and India Foods.
