DEVANAHALLI PROJECT, INDIA
In 2016 we supported children and widows in need of shelter and protection. by organising a showcase to raise money for the Devanahalli Project, India. $2500 was donated on behalf of our DES community.
In 2019 we united with a local public school to raise money for Heartkids after one of our much-loved students passed away from heart failure. This is a charity dear to our hearts.
A dance showcase run by DES was held at Pacific Hills Christian School. Funds raised went to purchasing Christmas gifts and cards for the children in Alice Springs. A group flew to Alice Springs to distribute these Christmas gifts and spend time in the indigenous communities.
