Swaram is one of the largest Tamil stage performance groups in the San Francisco Bay area. Our five past Bollywood Musical style productions have received much enthusiasm and raving reviews from Bay area’s Tamil population. We have supported basic education for over 7,000 kids by donating the proceeds from our show to our Non profit partners.
Our next production, is scheduled for Sept 2016 and is targeted for an audience of 2000 people. Proceeds from this show benefit projects in Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh via India Literacy Project to provide basic education.
Friends of Swaram program is created for our friends and patrons locally and across the globe who are unable to attend the Sept 2016 show. You can support our goal of improving basic education in India by donating generously to the cause.
Adopt a kids education for just $300 !!
With high school results out , there are lots of kids that are getting geared up to step into college. It approximately its takes about $1000 to complete their education (Food / Stay / Books etc). Our partner NPO will enable students to avail of bank loans or scholarship schemes banks to fund 70% of this money which they can start repaying after graduation / job. So it takes about $300 to sponsor a kids college education ~ 3-4 yrs and with tax break or company match it would be just ~$200 or less to help a kid complete his / her college education.
This year we are partnering with ILP and our funds that we raise will support ILP’s goal of making India 100% literate. Your contributions directly help in this area.
