Education Initiative

‘Education Initiative’ is a noble initiative by a young lady, Kavita Rai, from Ravangla,South Sikkim , to widen perspectives and to enrich the child’s life in some way. Sikkim is a small state in India and children are less exposed to educational opportunities.
Kavita started ‘Education initiative’ to provide opportunity to young children to meet and interact with professionals from different fields. She believes that this would bridge the gap between aspirations and possibility. It will contribute to the development of children from remote and underprivileged areas of Sikkim.
‘Kalanilayam’ joined hands with ‘Education Initiative’ in this goal. This is a long term plan of dance workshops to be conducted at schools at Sikkim over the period of five years. It will be supported with providing dance training to talented students from Sikkim at Kalanilayam Centre for Dance , Pune.
First such workshop successfully took place in May 2016 where almost 50 students with the help of their enthusiastic teachers from VC Ganju Lama Senior Secondary School ( VCGLSSS) participated to study Bharatnatyam and Indian Folk Dance.
