Help kids #sayitwithdrama

"The secret of acting is to play like a child for the rest of your life.”



Dramebaaz is a one-of-a kind program designed to build 21st century skills in underprivileged children, help them become creative and confident agents of social change and to provide them with a platform to showcase their talents. Started by Prasanth Nori and Soumya Kavi during their Teach for India fellowship in 2015, this year Dramebaaz is all set to impact 3000 children from 250 schools across 5 cities. The program is designed to equip teachers from government and low income private schools to bring theater to their classrooms. It culminates into a grand performance in January, where students stage plays and showcase their acting prowess.



Most of our kids hail from underprivileged families. In their world they do not have voices and the ones that speak out are suppressed under societal pressure. They witness domestic violence, aggression, sexual abuse and even drug abuse with no one to hear their side of the story. Drama will give them their voice back. It helps them feel, process and express the situations they live in everyday. It gives them a safe space to share their stories, with kids who are going through the same. It will give many at-risk kids a productive channel and a safe environment. For one or more of them, it may even act as a career choice.



In order to further enhance theater in education, this year Dramebaaz-Bangalore will organize a couple of pit-stops where teachers and students can learn from experts and share ideas and techniques with each other. For the smooth flow of these events, the following need to be arranged for:
 
  • Resource personnel
  • Venue/ auditorium
  • Transport for all the children
  • Food
  • Technical equipment
  • Prizes and certificates
  • Merchandise


Your support will help transform the lives of thousands of children and give flight to their dreams.
We will be immensely grateful for your support, be it financial, well wishing, liking, and sharing!
Loads of love
Dramebaaz Bangalore

Hello folks, your undivided support has enabled us to organize a host of programs for students and facilitators alike.

We started the year with an induction for facilitators, followed by another workshop to enhance their theater facilitation skills inside the classroom. Here are a couple of pictures.
   

We also, successfully hosted an event for children, where theater professionals from across Bangalore came forth to perform for our children. Our students too, staged mini plays and evaluated each others performances. All in all, it was a fun-filled day.

 

We would also like to bring to your notice, that we have rescheduled the date of the showcase to the 16th of February. We look forward to seeing you for the showcase, cheering for our students.

Your support has brought us thus far. We look forward to your continued support in cash, kind or by simply sharing this with your near and dear ones.

Thank you once again for helping us say it with drama :)
