“We are truly ecstatic that Dr. Kalam will be gracing the AIM for Seva annual gala, which is our signature event when most of the fund-raising takes place.

AIM for Seva is known for its minimal administrative costs. This ensures that every cent donated is used for the intended cause–alleviating children from the abject poverty and putting them on the journey of learning.
Each year over 700 participants gather to support this worthy cause. Every participant sponsors a child for one year with the donation of $ 500. Anybody, who would like to be part of this cause, can participate in the gala by donating $ 500 to sponsor a child and avail two free gala tickets in return.
This year AIM has also organised an unforgettable afternoon of Hindustani Classical, Devotional and Haveli Sangeet by the living legend, and premier vocalist of India, Sangeet Martand Padmavibhushan Pandit Jasraj. The concert will be held at the Living Arts Center, Mississauga on October 31st at 3.00 pm. Please visit http://www.aimforseva.ca/news-events.html for further details.
