Salaam Baalak Trust to organize fundraiser with Qutbi Brothers
The trust is organizing a fundraiser on the 5th of October, 2018 at Gallery 1AQ, Qutab Minar.
For the past 30 years Salaam Baalak Trust has been a constant source of helping marginalized children realize their rights and feel safe in this world. Since its inception in 1988 the trust has toiled tirelessly and garnered immense goodwill allowing it to support over 90,000 children in need. Today the trust has 12 contact points, 7 shelter homes. 12000 of these children go to regular schools and 18000 have been reunited with their families. Besides this the trust also has three 24hours emergency helplines for any child in need of protection and care.
"We have received tremendous support from our well wishers, which has been our biggest motivation to support more children in the 30 years. The fund raiser helps us to connect with our donors as well as raise funds for the program", says Tanya Alag, Head, Resource Mobilization.
To continue their work towards street and underprivileged children and for celebrating 30 years, the trust is organizing a fundraiser on the 5th of October, 2018 at Gallery 1AQ, Qutab Minar, 7 PM onwards. This will be one of the many events that would be held in celebration of the 30th anniversary of Salaam Baalak Trust.
The event will feature an evening of Qawwali with Qutbi Brothers Qawwals which will be open for all. Revered as one of India’s most celebrated qawwali singers, the Qutbi Brothers are the inheritors of a 750 year old tradition. They are respected for creating a record for a non-stop 12-hour Sufiana Qawwali singing programme organised by the Sangeet Natak Akademi to promote the Qawwali tradition.
