Seacoasters Enjoy Food & Holiday Spirit at Tulsi

Kittery, ME:  On December 11, Seacoasters convened at Tulsi Indian restaurant in Kittery to help RAIN kick off learning and earning programs for women and girls in Niger for 2014.

Tulsi owner and master chef Rajesh Mandekar created a special menu of delicious North Indian courses for the occasion, and Tuareg jewelry along with hand crafted items from RAIN’s artisan cooperatives were available for sale. 

Speakers included founder Bess Palmisciano and long time RAIN Board member Nancy Borden. Tulsi donated a large portion of the evening to RAIN.

RAIN would like to extend a warm thank you to all who attended, with extra special thanks to Raj Mandekar, Janet Howe, Jodi and the rest of the Tulsi staff. Thanks also to: Jessica Hulseman, Isabel Hulseman and Susan Pratt-Smith.

Tuareg men from the Aïr region spend 5-7 months each year on camel caravans, traveling to Bilma for dates and salt, and then to Kano to trade them for millet and other foodstuffs, household tools, and luxury items such as spices, perfume, and cloth.
