Seva Cafe at Paradigm Shift with informal waste workers from Hasiru Dala
Seva Café is an experiment in the shared joy that comes from humble giving and selfless service. As we serve, we internalize the mantra of “Atithi Devo Bhava” which translates to “The Guest is God,” a deep and ancient Indian view that honors each guest with reverence.
In our continuous endeavor in spreading the message of Seva, Seva Cafe and Paradigm Shift Restaurant invites you all to its unique Seva Cafe as guests. We are organising Seva Cafe with Waste Pickers from Hasiru Dala as Volunteers. They are going to cook, serve and entertain all of you. Please join us in good numbers and encourage them.
The funds raised by the event will be donated to Hasiru Dala to support the education of the children of informal waste workers.
Date: 10th May, 2015
Venue: Paradigm Shift, 3rd-4th Floor, 8, Above GKB Opticals, 80 Feet Road, Koramangala 4th Block, Near Sony Signal Bangalore.
