Our Members Say

I am extremely grateful that Anisha had this opportunity to present her newly acquired talent. She enjoys stage presence but also struggles with the sensory over load of a public performance. Anisha had performed with the group singing “Heal the World” for Jeena Yahaan 2013.

Our Volunteer Say

Working with the Jeena kids has truly been an incredible experience. Here, I am able to use my fervor for dance as an outlet for developmentally challenged children and teenagers from the South Asian community to express and enable themselves through music and movement.
