Where the Brahmaputra Meets the Mississippi - 2007
A cultural show featuring premiere musical and dance performances proudly presented by The Powderhorn Phillips Cultural Wellness Center and the Twin Cities Assamese community.

The Brahmaputra snakes its way from the Himalayas and engulfs the banks of Assam, India every year during the spring monsoon.  As the river flows many girls are forced to leave their villages and are exploited as maid servants making 500 rupees ($12) a month.  The Society for Promotion of Appropriate Development Efforts (SPADE) is a volunteer organization in Assam training young girls as nursing assistants, finding them employment
where they earn a livable wage and are offered safe places to live.

The festivities will benefit girls and women from Assam, India and Minneapolis , MN through programs  by Tree and the Well and the Society for Promotion of Appropriate Development Efforts, Assam, India (SPADE).
