More than 350 guests attended the public talk, bhajans and meditation led by Br. Shubamrita held at the Oshwal High School Auditorium, Nairobi on February 7th evening. The topic on which he spoke, “Take Charge of Your Life,” was well received by both Indians and native Kenyans.

Br. Shubamrita also visited several children’s care homes to distribute food and interact with the children.

The project is to be launched during Amma’s visit in April.

Br. Shubamrita also conducted hour-long radio interviews with Sound Asia and East FM.
