RASA – Unifying through the artistic experience

RASA, a non-profit organization, imparting a unique education program to individuals with special needs, through artistic experience. Theater arts are used as a tool to empower any individual to his / her highest potential. Education as well as life skills training is imparted to individuals with differing abilities and the modules are individual specific.

Several hundred special children have benefited from RASA over the past three decades. To enable this unique education program to continue and for it to reach more children with special needs, your support and financial participation is vitally important.

Shivani Swarnakar, a rising junior at Bridgewater Raritan High School, New Jersey, has been learning the Indian classical dance of Bharatanatyam for 11 years. As she prepares to graduate in this dance form, Shivani would like to perform her Arangetram in July 2023, for a cause – to make a small difference using the medium of dance and education. She found RASA’s work to be profound and life changing. As a dance student herself, she can relate to this unique experience that art provides to any student.

Shivani is hoping to channel any monetary donations from her Arangetram towards supporting this important cause. The proceeds from this event will be donated to RASA- Ramana Sunritya Aalaya (rasaindia.org). No donation is too small, and every contribution will make a difference. Thank you in advance for your consideration!
