As Covid continues to rage in cities across America, and schools scamper to figure out safe ways to open, we at TKG Academy are getting ready to welcome our bhakti scholars with the best preparations for their safety. TKG Academy, the very first school established by the Founder Acharya of ISKCON, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, is supported primarily by the generosity of donors. Ongoing preparations are continuing as we start classes, offering both remote and in-school options, and preparing for the safety of all levels in all classrooms, with all students and staff.
Today, we reach out to you! Please give as much as you can and please share widely. Many blessings will undoubtedly be showered upon you and your family as you give the gift of education during these unprecedented times.
