Anant Programme

(Since 2008)

This programme is supported by Flowering Tree Inc., U.S.A.

Very often we believe that the only thing that can help you earn a livelihood is a degree in a conventional field. But what if we told you that the applied arts are as important as well. Would you believe us? Not only do we believe in it, we advocate it. We are of the strong opinion that if a student is blessed with the talent of dance, music and other performance arts – we must encourage it. Who require we may just be nurturing the next Arijit Singh or Kunal Kamra. Anant is a collaborative arts education programme between Flowering Tree Inc, USA and Light of Life Trust that empowers the Anando students to pursue careers in the performing arts.

Our Anando students who are interested and have the potential to do well in the performing arts are enrolled in this programme. Our children, especially those who requires support to overcome challenges to their aspirations in this field are chosen.
