Bollywood Theme Night
Invite members of your group to dress in Indian Clothing, show a Bollywood movie or play Indian music. Ask people to bring curries to eat or cook your own! Invite a UnitingWorld speaker to address your group about your Indian project or download information about the project and invite others to come along to hear about it. Find ways to communicate about the complexity and strengths of Indian culture as well as the needs associated with your project. Ask for gold coin donations or for people to provide for the costs associated with some aspect of the project – for example, $20 provides a school uniform, $68 provides books and a school uniform for two students and $113 provides tuition fees, books and school uniforms for a student for a year.
