The Pleasure is all Ours

“What is the essence of life? To serve others and to do good.”

Spoken by the Greek philosopher Aristotle over 2300 years ago, one of the most ancient quotes about volunteering offers proof that giving back to the community is hardly a new concept. From immigrants escaping violent conflict and under-priveledged kids needing education to homeless people in need of housing, there is no shortage of ways; for us to make a difference. With so many people less fortunate than those of us who can afford to have the luxuries, giving back to society is becoming increasingly important these days.

The A R Rahman foundation has always aimed to dissolve boundaries through music and apart from our flagship programs in association with KM Music Conservatory; we have started our first outreach program at a government aided school; 'General Cariappa School, Saligramam, Chennai.

Our first batch of 38 students, in the age group of 10-12 years. 

To begin with these children shall start learning Violin and Cello and there on the program shall proceed into its next phase. We feel proud to share that the music education of these children will be imparted by none other than the batch of senior students from sunshine orchestra strings ensemble !!!

Yes, you read that right!

The seed of hope that was sewed; is now bearing fruit of transformation. 'A change that our society is in dire need of !These children; who started learning in our flagship program nearly a decade ago, are today already giving back to the community. They are the change makers our society needs today.

The pleasure is indeed ours that we are the driving force in shaping the future of these children, society and India.
