em[POWER] Rutgers Chapter Recieves Outstanding Service Award

On Sunday, April 24th, 2011, the Rutgers chapter of the Thaakat Foundation had a benefit banquet titled “Heroes Among Us”. At the event, several student organizations, including the em[POWER] Rutgers Chapter, were recognized for their work in local and international communities. Pictured above is the award received by two members from the Rutgers Chapter, Tammy Hsu and Henry Chao.

All proceeds from the night’s event went towards Thaakat’s “Project Greenlight India”, where they are implementing a sustainable system of solar-powered LED lanterns to provide light to a poor village called Jahwar.
