NalandaWay was started with a staunch belief in art as a healing and learning medium. Through dance, music, visual arts, theater and films we work with children to find their voice, express through art and think for themselves. Our interventions have helped the kids to develop self confidence to be masters of their lives. Follow our chronicles and be a part of this amazing journey.

A letter from Santa Claus
Ho Ho Ho! This is Santa writing to you.
Here's wishing you a very merry Christmas! It’s another exciting year here at the North Pole! The elves are busy making toys, wrapping up presents and labelling gifts while the reindeer are ready to make another fun trip.
I’ve also been consulting the map and have realized that there are quite a few places that I won’t be able to cover. Making the journey from the North Pole to India on a sleigh is quite tiring and I think I might need a little help from your end.
Rudolph and I have chosen you because, this past year you’ve been at the top of the ‘NICE’ list having lent your support to a number of worthwhile causes! So here's how you can pitch in:
There are these little girls in Gujarat- bright and all of 11 years old who had asked me for bicycles so that they could go to school (which is really far away). So why don't you gift them one on my behalf?
Or you could also hit all the right notes this Christmas by helping a bunch of kids learn music through this great organization called 'Rhapsody'
Or you could help discover a new Picasso from the local schools of Chennai by gifting them art supplies through 'NalandaWay'
All you have to do is visit any one of the links given below on this super-cool website called OrangeStreet.in. The website has given me permission to help these children by campaigning for them here:
Once you visit the website and learn about the project, simply click the ‘donate’ button to contribute an amount of your choice. With your help, these kids will have gifts they’ve always wanted for a long time. Rudolph and I really hope that no child is left without a present this year. With your help, we’ll able to reach out to hundreds of kids who need our love and support this year. Will you please help us out?
