Towards Sustainability

We been talking for months about selling the Revolutionaries’ artwork to generate revenue for Kranti….and it’s no longer just talk!

Kranti has partnered with Lost World Imports,  a socially responsible creative arts business. They bought their first consignment of 9 paintings from Kranti for $750, which will be exhibited in Georgia on 17th April. This sale will cover Kranti’s expenses of educating all the Revolutionaries for two whole months!

We are working to launch additional for-profit ventures on our quest for financially sustainability.  

Unfortunately, we did not make it to the final round of Echoing Green. But the feedback that we got from the panel will be helpful for us to write better applications in the future.

The Revolutionaries watched two plays this month, which raised many questions in their minds and led to introspective dinner-time conversations: “The Joke”, which questions the existence of God, and “The Vagina Monologues” in Hindi. The Revolutionaries were so inspired that they are taking help from one of our volunteers to write their own version of the “Vagina Monologues.”

Thank you for your continued support and for making all of these successes possible.


Featured Revolutionary: Sarita

Sarita’s passion to revolutionize public school education in India is an inspiration to all the Revolutionaries.

She is the oldest Revolutionary, and also the first to get a job! Along with studying to finish High School, she teaches Primary School children English, Hindi and Marathi, to gain experience for her future role as a public school teacher.

Starting this month Sarita is going to blog daily on our website. Please encourage her by reading and commenting on her posts!
