About this project

As an Indian women in the arts, my heart was captured by the tale of these 16 children living in the slums of India, who have found a way to escape their own reality of poverty and deprivation by re-telling the stories of our world's great leaders and inspirational guides through dance and storytelling.

These children have been working for the past two years to bring their talent and interpretations of Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr, and Nelson Mandela to the the United States.  When it came to the attention of the Atlanta community that there may be time in their US tour for an additional location, my mother, aunt, and friends decided they had to find a way to bring these children to Atlanta.  As an Indian born and raised in Atlanta, and a professional artist working in the theater, they came to me for help and guidance. I felt an immediate obligation to contribute as much as I could to help foster the growth of Indian arts in my hometown, as well as support the true talent of these children.  Therefore, I am reaching out to all of you, my artistic collaborators, friends, and anyone who believes that no matter how rich or poor, we can find ONENESS thru the art of storytelling and dance

The money that I raise will help provide airfare to Atlanta and secure a performance space  in which we can experience these children's indescribable interpretations of Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr and Nelson Mandela.  Any contribution you make will make a world of difference, and will be greatly appreciated.  I thank you for your time and support.

ONENESS to us all,

Neelam Vaswani
