Music is known to get people together and the Rang De Concert aims to do just that and reach out to people – to spread the word about microcredit and Rang De. The concert will be a fundraiser cum an awareness event. We are looking for sponsors who will join hands with us to achieve this mission.
Probably for the first time the event will be held amidst an organic farm and an eco-friendly restaurant in the heart of OMR, bordering the backwaters of the Muthukadu Lake near Thoraipakkam. We hope that this venue will help us in significantly reducing the carbon footprint of the event.
