Udaipur is a city of vast economic divides.  Many of the schools we work with in Udaipur are deeply impoverished. Just getting clothes and food to the children uses up a huge amount of the resources allotted to the administrators. Teachers and administrators often do not have the resources to provide even the basic school essentials, like pencils, paper, and text books. In most of these schools, there is simply no funding for additional programming. 

We find similar issues in our extracurricular programs. It is essential to us that all of our workshops, performances and classes are accessible to people of every caste, in every corner of the city. So we've taken it on ourselves to raise funds. 

Your contribution, big or small, makes a huge difference to the programs we can bring to the city of Udaipur.  All donations made are tax deductible.  Thank you.
