RUN THE FOUNDATION
The Foundation is looking for office space and need to pay the salary of the music teachers and office staff. This is the most expensive part of running the Foundation and necessary to run the Foundation successfully. Please help us financially, offer us available office and Gurukul space or sponsor the salary of a teacher or working for the Foundation.

HELP US TO SET UP A MUSIC PROGRAM FOR UNDERPRIVILEGED CHILDREN
The Shubhendra and Saskia Rao Foundation sets up long term music programs in different schools and organizations for underprivileged children. We train specialized music teachers in the Music4All curriculum for each project. Each project means a long- term promise to each child in that school from foundation level until they finish their schooling.

ORGANIZE CONCERTS AND EVENTS
Our children’s concert in Select CITYWALK mall in Saket was attended by many children and gave the platform to many children to perform on a big stage. The confidence this gave them and the awareness we could raise was a high note for the Foundation!
