It is the fundamental right of all children to have access to education, adequate food, healthcare services and to participate in their community’s cultural life. Empowering disadvantaged children gives them the opportunity to obtain academic qualifications as well as develop their musical talents.
Through their achievements at Kalkeri Sangeet Vidyalaya (Kalkeri Music School) KSV, the students will be in a position to attain more meaningful livelihoods, thus breaking the cycle of persistent poverty and creating a better future for themselves, their families, and their communities. Through their music, the students proudly contribute towards the conservation and diﬀusion of India’s vast musical heritage.
Our organization is guided by five core values, namely integrity, compassion, equity, cooperation, and achievement. These values represent our commitment to conducting ourselves in a responsible, ethical and equitable manner. They serve as guiding principles for all aspects of our work and represent the beliefs and behaviours that we hold in the highest regard. Integrity is the foundation upon which we build all of our relationships, both internally and externally, and refers to our commitment to honesty and ethical behaviour in all our actions. Compassion drives us to understand and care for others, promoting a culture of empathy and support. Equity ensures that everyone is treated fairly and with respect, regardless of their background or circumstances, and speaks to our belief in fairness and justice for all. Cooperation enables us to work together effectively, leveraging our collective strengths to achieve common goals. Finally, achievement is about striving for excellence and continuous improvement in everything we do. These values are essential to our success as an organization, and we strive to embody them in all that we do.
KSV empowers, supports, and encourages children from socially marginalized and economically disadvantaged backgrounds to realize their full potential and attain a better life. This is done through an intensive and comprehensive educational program and through the performing arts which are undertaken in a peaceful rural residential setting.
In such an atmosphere, the children learn many social skills and receive a nutritious diet and adequate healthcare services. Care, love, and compassion are fundamental elements of the whole process. In this peaceful setting, the children enjoy the tranquillity necessary for their academic studies, music practice, and many other cultural activities.
