When you blend Argentine Tango and French Cuisine, you get On Board For Kids, an association helping poor and needy children around the world.
Martha Castaño, PhD, is a part time lecturer at Boston University and mother of three lovely children. She is married to Dr. Pracha Eamranond, whom she met while “tango-ing” while they were both studying at Yale University. When Martha and Pracha moved to Boston after dancing tango for the year in Buenos Aires, they began the Harvard School of Public Health Tango Club, where they teach tango and organize dance events.
That is how French Master Chef Jacky Robert, met Martha. He was a student in her class.
Jacky and Martha soon realized they had something in common. They both had non-profit foundations benefiting poor children. Martha’s “Sunantha Camila Foundation” is building a school in Colombia for some of the most underprivileged children of Circasia, Colombia (www.sunanthacamila.org). Jacky, with “Chefs Feed Kids”, is feeding street kids in Dasmarinas, Philippines (www.chefsfeedkids.org).
Jacky was seduced by Martha’s compassion, energy and dedication to giving poor children in Colombia the opportunity to get an education. They both decided to work together to give less fortunate kids around the world a chance.
On Board For Kids was born on June 4, 2013. This unique association is going to be opened to other foundations all over the world. Fundraising events will focus on helping children in need.
