Dear Friends, 

My posting about the VHP Support A Child Project has been rejected by
the moderator of S.C.I.-Info.  I urge you to consider the contents
of the posting that has been appended below and some of the other
postings that have appeared in that newsgroups (I am appending a
sampling of that as well).

The reason given is that this posting comes from a religious
organization.  VHP of America, is indeed a religious and cultural
organization, however, why is the Support-A-Child program sponsored by
VHP-A treated differently?  Just because the name of our organization
has the word Hindu in it?

It is interesting that along with CRY (which supports children in
India), a purely political announcement by AIPSG (leftist students
organization) was also accepted for posting on SCI-Info.

Whereas, in the past announcemnts by Hindu Students Council have been

We are not asking for any special treatment.  Just equal treatment.
Just because the name of our organization has the word Hindu in it, it
should not constitute the reason for rejection of our announcement.

I urge all the readers of s.c.i. to vocally reject this discrimination.

Ajay Shah

VHP Support-A-Child Program -An Overview
Prepared by Mr. Ramesh Patel, Vice President for Seva Projects VHP of America



The SUPPORT-A-CHILD Program of VHP, now in NINTH Year, has reached a new
milestone, of Serving over 500 Children in Sixteen (16) states of
India. This unique Selfless service of needy children of the
society started in 1985 with inspiration from Shri Vishnupuriji
Maharaj of Parmarth Sadhak Sangh, Calcutta, India. In a short
span of seven years many families from the USA are offering funds
on a regular basis. These children are being supported on a long
term basis at various facilities throughout India. We have
rendered  support to needy children through well established
organizations working in the field of child support.

LONG TERM COMMITTED SERVICE: Support -A- Child Program of
Parishad believes in serving through well established reputed
organizations. Long term support of children over the short term
aid to some students has been the Key factor of this program.
Parishad emphasizes a wholesome and loving yet disciplined
atmosphere for the process of development of these children. The
management cost is a bare minimum, presently at a level of less
then TWO(2) Percent.

Support-a-child programs are handled through a National office in
Delaware for the coordination and accounting.  In past TWO Years
alone, an aggregate commitment of well over $250,000 for these
children has been accepted. We have already collected and
distributed funds in excess of $64,000 in the past
Eight (8) years. Here is a snap shot of our services:
