Hope you and your family are doing well during these difficult times. For the India Society, one of our biggest efforts this year is the expansion of the India Center. While the Covid pandemic temporarily halted construction, we are happy to inform you that construction has resumed and we expect to complete by November. However, a planned fundraising gala was deferred to 2021 due to restrictions. We thank our community for their past support but we need your continued help, in the interim, more than ever. Click on the Donate link to help us achieve our goal of Capital Fund Raising. Below you can follow our progress of the expansion at the India Center.
June 2020 Update
The ISW India Center Expansion Project made its first significant construction breakthrough in late spring of 2020. By June, the foundation for the addition in the back had been laid and the front of the building had been dismantled. The video to the left is a short movie consisting of drone footage and videos taken by ISW Volunteers. We look forward to sharing the upcoming progress of the India Center Construction with you.
July 2020 Update
In July of 2020, India Center evolved dramatically as part of the ISW India Center Expansion Project. On July 9th, a steel structure was shipped to India Center and assembled on site. The establishment of the structure took over 6 hours as workers unpacked, maneuvered, and positioned the many heavy steel beams into the structure now standing. Over the next couple of days, the construction was documented via drone and iPhone footage and compiled into a short movie (Left). With the underlying steel structure erected, we can't wait to share the next significant step in the ISW Expansion Project with you.
July - Donors Steel Pillars signing
The ISW India Center Expansion Project is a multi-million dollar investment. In order to fund this incredible project, ISW relies on its donors and volunteers. With the steel structure erected in mid-July, the Expansion Committee wished to present their progress to a select number of top donors and volunteers. Over a span of 2 weeks, donors were invited for (socially-distant) private signing sessions with the Expansion Committee as a thank you for their efforts in funding the Expansion Project. Drone footage of these sessions were compiled into a short movie (Left). We can't wait to show you the next step in our Expansion Project.
