Story

"There is theatre in life, obviously and there is life in theatre"
                                                                         -Charlie Kaufman
Dramebaaz is an initiative started by Teach for India fellows that uses theatre to empower students with the essential life skills to become confident and creative agents of social change.

This year, 250 children from 18 low-income schools in Bangalore will get a chance to showcase their plays on stage.These children are mentored by Teach for India fellows teaching in the schools and also by theatre experts periodically.

What is unique about this children theatre festival?
The complete ownership from script writing to characterization to prop designing to acting is with the children. Its their sole creation that goes on the stage.The mentorship during Dramebaaz is designed in order to render four very important life skills to children- Problem-solving, Collaboration, Confidence, and Self-esteem. These skills are periodically self-assessed with the help of a student-friendly rubric ensuring children reflect on their learnings.

Your funds will bring a smile on 250 little faces : How you ask?
The children will be given an opportunity to showcase their plays at a final event in Bangalore. Your funds will go towards organising that event.
  1.  A stupendous venue for the event
  2. Arrange transport for all the children ensuring their safety
  3.  Prizes, goodies and medals (remember how much you loved this as a kid )
  4. Yummy yummy food for the little ones (this they will never forget)
  5. Super cool sound and light system to enhance their already super performances :)
