  • NGO Diksha provides education for the children

More than 40 guests enjoyed a wonderful benefit concert offered by well-known singer and guitarist Alicia Fajardo at the beach restaurant Ra-Ma in Marbesa last Saturday. It was organised by Dr Jovanka Manojlovic, the head of Diksha España, and other volunteers of the Indian-based foundation with the support of always cooperative and generous restaurant owners Rafael Osorio and Maria Rueda. Diksha is a non-profit organisation based in the town of Ajmer, Rajasthan, which provides orphaned children, especially girls, with a continuous education and a decent home. Diksha allows further education for especially talented children. The goals of the NGO are mainly financed by the proceeds of several charity events as concerts and big dinner parties around the year and the sponsoring of individual children.

After the concert, Dr Jovanka Manojlovic explained that they were always looking for volunteers to spend six months in Ajmer to help Diksha and their proteges directly. For further information please phone 650 752 691 or send an email to diksha.project@gmail.com.
