This programme was intitated by the support from The Rajiv Gandhi Foundation during 2006-2008.
We have also been working on our self motivated programme “Education Through Performing Arts”. This has been one of the most effective programs where the young children learn dance, music theatre from various specialized artists, here we have experienced that the children involved in this program are overall much more tuned to concept of conservation, ecology etc. along with team work, ethics, their ability to grasp and learn strengths, and in the long run they get involved in social projects as well as turn out to be confident, capable individuals. This project runs on the grants received by those who see the programs.
