Mumbai, December : Korum Mall being one of the most popular landmark of Thane is known to take thoughtful steps to ensure they benefit the society at large. It was indeed a joyful Christmas as Korum joined hands with Furtados School of Music (FSM) and took children from Salaam Bombay Foundation (SBF) under their wing to put up a melodious musical show. The children used the platform well and left the audience ‘merry and joyful’ after their soulful performance.
SBF is a NGO that works towards keeping adolescents in school by empowering them to make the right choices about their health, education and livelihood thereby ensuring that they can thrive with a bright future. Through this association Korum and FSM are working towards helping SBF achieve their goal by helping their students learn music and express their emotions fearlessly.
Further to add on to the excitement, FSM finalized a few talented students from the batch to provide them with scholarships, guide them through professional training and give them a chance to explore a career in music. These kids will then form a musical band which would facilitate performances on a larger scale and make a great contribution in shaping their life.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Deva Jyotula, Retail Head at Kalpataru Limited, said “Korum mall believes that every child is special and they should be given the equal opportunities to rise in their life. Not just that, but giving them a platform like “Shining Stars” will surely help them recognize their strengths and build confidence to pursue their love of music. It is a great feeling to support Salaam Bombay Foundation with a strong partner like Furtados School of music and extending this joint initiative a grand success”
