Annual 'Hope' Dinners 2021

Thank you for supporting our 2021 annual dinners, held in three time zone, and for generously giving to those on the margins. Together we raised funds to support the operations in 85 villages for an entire year!
This year our dinners were live-streamed and took place in three time zones, 3 East Coast (AEST); 1 West Coast (AWST) and 1 in New Zealand.

People joined from their homes or gathered in groups as permitted, enjoying Indian cuisine, and experiencing a ‘touch of India’. Music, recipes, decorations and resources were downloaded from the website.

Many reported that they enjoyed our virtual dinners MORE than our live events. Those living in regional areas expressed that they were delighted they could join in, as did those who avoid night-time outings. Feedback from those in lockdown was that this was an innovative and enjoyable alternative to Netflix!

Highlights

Funds raised supported the entire operations of our work in 85 villages for a year. THANK YOU to all who believed us when we said it was ‘not another Zoom’ meeting, who registered, invited guests, gave, and partnered with this work. If you missed out, we are producing a truncated version of approx. 40 minutes that you can share with others who have a heart for issues of injustice.
