Every so often, we’re lucky enough to cross paths with rising stars in community service. Recently, we profiled the USC organization SARSA, South Asian Rural Student Aid. This university organization’s mission is to provide financial aid and guidance to underprivileged students in rural parts of South Asia. SARSA volunteers traveled to India and taught children communication skills and proper health and dietary habits. Their initiatives have created opportunities for community involvement in Los Angeles, and have given volunteers a unique perspective on the vital relationship between teachers and students.
