A service Adventure with TEDxMileHigh speaker P.J. Parmar exploring the stories and lives of refugees building new lives in Denver, Colorado.

Join P.J. Parmar as we explore the challenges facing refugees who are making a new home in Denver and the creative ways Mango House is working to provide critical services and welcome and them as they rebuild their lives in Denver.

Then, get ready to lend a hand on a service project helping Mango House as they expand to their new facility. After you have worked up an appetite, we will share a delicious Nepali lunch with PJ and several refugees as we hear stories of their lives and hopes for the future.

*Optional – Mango House will have additional service projects for anyone who wants to stick around and help after lunch.


Stay tuned for more details!

Parmar founded Ardas Family Medicine, a private practice that serves resettled refugees, and Mango House, a home for refugees with activities and services that include dental care, food and clothing banks, churches, scout troops, and afterschool programs. Before studying medicine, P.J. was an environmental engineer, a backpacking guide with the Boy Scouts, and a world travel junkie. He is the son of Punjabi immigrants and stay-at-home dad to a four-year-old. P.J. owns just two identical pairs of pants and enjoys his oatmeal lumpy.
