This past Monday night, Meera and Vikram Gandhi opened their townhouse, the former residence of First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, to One To World, a New York City-based non-profit organization that brings Americans and Fulbright Scholars from around the world face-to-face to share their lives and perspectives in life changing ways. The event was attended by over 100 Fulbright grantees and internationalists from the corporate, educational and non-profit sectors.

The Ghandis have been involved with One To World since 2007 when the organization honored the couple at its annual Fulbright Awards Dinner. They received the Humanitarian Award in recognition of their sustained commitment to furthering cross-cultural understanding and charitable action.

Since then, they have remained active in the organization, hosting events and helping One To World further the goal of bringing Americans and international students together to learn from one another and, together, become active citizens in a global society. Additionally, Meera Gandhi has served as Co-Chair of the 2008 and 2009 Fulbright Awards Dinners, using her role to increase the visibility of and support for One To World.
