Rang De is a web-based social initiative that supports rural micro-entrepreneurs from low income households with cost-effective loans to either set up or run a business. Through its online lending platform called www.rangde.org, the organization enables individuals to lend small sums of money to micro-entrepreneurs from low income households.
Swarathma is a popular Bangalore based music group (www.swarathma.com). They sing songs born of pain and pleasure, joys and sorrows, rain and shine, of hope that lifts hearts out of despair, of life as we know it today. The 6 member band has performed in cities across India and abroad. With a great combination of folk instruments and lyrics that can touch the listener’s soul, the band has very graciously agreed to support Rang De.
Guest of Honour - Ms. Waheeda Rehman has graciously agreed to attend the event. Ever since she learnt about Rang De in December last year she has been an active supporter.
Music is known to get people together and the Rang De Concert aims to do just that and reach out to people – to spread the word about microcredit and Rang De. The concert will be a fundraiser cum an awareness event. We are looking for sponsors who will join hands with us to achieve this mission.
