LO6 – Demonstrate engagement with issues of global significance

Having been a part of Kahaani for my third year now, I have grown attached to the cause it supports. What initially started from my passion for dance, is now my passion for the service itself. While I am not a part of the NGO it is not lost on me that by taking part in the show and encouraging my parents and friends to come to see it, I am supporting visually impaired and orphaned children in Kolkata, India. Being from India myself, I recognize the stigma that surrounds disabilities and the scale of the orphanage. It is with pride I end each show, knowing that I have contributed to a global cause, beyond just donating money. It is with pride I end each show, knowing that for those three minutes I was on stage, I was an advocate for the equal love, and rights of the children in Kolkata.
