Kalkeri Sangeet Vidyalaya

  • Start Date 2017-01-10
  • End Date: 2017-12-31

  • Location: rural environment

Kalkeri Sangeet Vidyalaya is primarily a music school but also has a strong focus on academic education. It is holistic in its approach to education. There are currently 110 children who mainly come from economically marginalized families. These keen youngsters would normally not get the opportunity of exposure to Hindustani Classical Music which is taught at the school. Our main aims are
to teach this ancient art of music whilst also ensuring all the students get a through and complete academic education.


Accommodation & food is provided at the project


Besides music, there are also daily yoga classes which ensure the children grow up fit, strong and healthy. KSV is a residential institution. The children and staff come from many of the different communities from North Karnataka, this makes for a real cultural mosaic and we are proud of the fact that we all live in harmony together.

  • There is no bias towards volunteer’s gender; both male and female are welcome.
  • All volunteers must be above the age of eighteen.
  • They should be enthusiastic, adaptable and honest and above all have an open mind.
  • They should arrive at KSV with the thought in mind about how best they can contribute to the project. In the volunteers daily work there will be contact with children so a desire to work with children is beneficial.
  • As there are usually at least ten volunteers at KSV there must be a willingness to be part of a team.
  • Our location is very rural and we live in a traditional manner so volunteers should be prepared to leave behind some of their home comforts that they may be used to.
  • Volunteers must be fluent in one of the following languages; English, French, Hindi or Kannada.
  • If volunteers have certain skills that could be useful to one specific department, then we will utilize their services there
  • Skills which are desirable and helpful but not essential are: experience in healthcare (Ayurveda or Homeopathy are best), teaching experience (especially English as a foreign language), experience working with small children, professional musicians, experience in the field of agriculture or horticulture and anyone with good office skills are always welcome.
