About Me

Hey guys, I'm Nikhil Chinapa. You may know me for my work at MTV India and the music festivals and events I've been associated with - Submerge, Sunburn and Vh1 Supersonic. Today I’m going to share something special with you that’s as close to my heart as music is – it’s the cause of education for the girl child.

I’m not going to bore you with preachy stuff about how noble it is to support a social cause (which it is!), but I will share with you some information about a very cool organization that runs a programme called ‘The Schooling Project’.

In the spirit of music and Diwali, I hope you’ll read on and stand with me as I campaign for equal rights, harmony and peace for girl-children this Diwali. Don't miss the very cool rewards that are on offer for supporting this campaign. View them on the right-hand side of this page.

So come, be a part of the goodness. Be a part of the Diwali spirit. Let's pay it forward this Diwali. 'Tis the season for it!

The Cause

So the NGO is Indu Jagmohan Toshniwal Charitable Foundation. Their team, in partnership with Global Concerns India, run different programmes but the one I’m campaigning for specifically is The Schooling Project, an initiative that aims to raise funds for the school fees of 460 underprivileged children who are getting educated in 47 different schools in Bangalore.

These young girls have the ability to do awesome things but don’t have the privileges and opportunities we were blessed with. All they need is someone to believe in their potential and be the wind beneath their wings. That’s where you and I step in.

We have the power to totally transform their lives with a small gesture. As we all know, with power comes responsibility. So come stand by me and use this power for their good!

The Funds

The funds we raise will go towards giving these bright, young girls a holistic educational experience. It will give them opportunities to pursue their dreams – be they in professional sports, the creative arts (music being one of them!) or even environmental sciences. This Diwali, let's light up their faces with joy and ignite their minds with the power of knowledge!  

About the NGO

Indu Jagmohan Toshniwal Charitable Foundation has three amazing programmes running currently – The Schooling Project, The College Project and the Assisted Learning Programme. The foundation provides quality education to underprivileged children and believes that only education can have a long-lasting and meaningful impact on our community. Hear hear!

They want girls to be given a holistic education, with each individual finding their identity, purpose and meaning in life through connections to the community and the natural world. 

The Appeal

I share their belief and support their mission. I hope you do too. We have the power to transform the lives of these young girls forever. Let this Diwali be all about exercising it!

Thank You! And have a very Happy Diwali!

Nikhil Chinapa
