It’s been one more long hiatus since you, our loyal supporters, have been updated on our activities here at Sangam India. We’d like to share something exciting that came up yesterday. We met with the CEO, Ram, of an organisation called Rang De (www.rangde.org). Rang De is a microlending organization based in Chennai and consists of a dynamic group of people who really want to make a difference. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting with them and are looking forward to working with them in the future. Please do check out their website for more information.
Rang De is hosting a fundraising concert on May 1st at 6 pm at Buck’s Theatre, YMCA, Chennai. The main artist will be Swarathma, an Indian folk band with a socially conscious message. Tickets are available at www.indianstage.in, or you can approach us for student tickets. The great thing about this concert is that Rs. 100 of your ticket cost will go to an investment in Rang De and its borrowers, and will come back to you. So you can listen to great music AND make a difference! Let us know if you’d like student tickets, or you can buy regular tickets online.
Please make sure you visit their website at www.rangde.org.
