Battling Hate Crimes Through Awareness and Action

It was the second day of my fellowship in Mexico City. Two glassy-eyed, heavy-hearted transgender women sat on a bench consoling a third, who had bruises all over her.

The Batti Project Part 1: Arunachal Pradesh, the Land of the Rising Sun

Everyone has a reason for volunteering. Our motley crew of four CEBers had a mix of reasons, including helping the community and challenging our personal boundaries. The four of us—Ankita Roy (Gurgaon), Aditi Bhardwaj (Mumbai), Arnab Mandal (Bengaluru), and Rahil Akhtar (Gurgaon)—met as strangers but became friends in no time.

Ever wonder what goes into running a nonprofit organization? In the DC community alone, hundreds of charitable organizations serve all manner of causes, from helping kids achieve their full potential to making sure everyone has enough to eat.
