Posted on December 24th, by ABC admin in charity. No Comments

AlphaBet Club Friends,

As the holiday season is upon us, this is the time of the year to reflect on what we accomplished this past year. For us that means looking back on the ABC charity projects in India, the improvements in our organization and the 17 (FUN)draising events in Amsterdam and Madrid.

I’m happy to share that 2013, with your support, the AlphaBet Club:

* Completed our 4th New School Project – Freesia, in Bangalore, India and already has 108 students attending.
* Have an average of 238 children from the slums going to school 6 days a week
* Served 61,972 nutritious meals to students in our schools in India in 2013 – and surpassing 100,000 meals since openings.
* Hosted 17 [FUN]draising events – 11 in Amsterdam and 6 in Madrid
25 new volunteers added to strengthen our team and support our operations
* Celebrated our 7th Anniversary and coming up on 100th ABC Event
* Roll out of a new web site, URL/Domain, blog and logo –
* New Monthly Newsletter Updates for each School Project in India sharing photos curriculum, nutrition, attendance and visitor information. See all months at:
