Sunidhi Chauhan is a world-renowned singer who has had numerous blockbuster hits during her career as one of India’s foremost playback singers. Her superhit songs include “Desi Girl”, “Ishq Sufiyaana”, “Aaja Nachle”, “Sheila ki Jawani”, “Kamli”, and “Dilliwali Girlfriend”.
She was also recognised with several awards from the prestigious Indian International Film Awards, ZEE Cine Awards, Filmfare Awards, Global Indian Music Awards, Star Screen Awards and Mirchi Awards.
She has a number of international collaborations to her credit, including the huge hit “Heartbeat” with Enrique Iglesias.
Sunidhi’s concert is a fundraiser for the construction of the new Dharmic Rama Krishna Secondary School and expanded Primary School at Pattensen, East Coast Demerara and to help cover the operational costs of Bal Nivas, the Sabha’s Shelter in Ankerville, Berbice for children who are victims of abuse.
Bal Nivas, which was opened in 2014 and funded by concerts held by the Sabha, currently houses 34 children.
The Sabha provides them with shelter, food, clothing, school supplies, uniforms, staff support, counselling and all other requirements. Children are directed to Bal Nivas by the Child Care and Protection Agency. The Sabha covers all the costs of the shelter through its fundraising activities and donations.
The Sabha currently runs the Dharmic Rama Krishna Play, Nursery and Primary School in Barr Street, Kitty which has been achieving excellent results over more than 15 years of existence and boasts well-trained and experienced teaching and management staff. There have been calls over the years for the Sabha to extend the school to the secondary level. The new Dharmic Rama Krishna School Project was launched in November 2015 and will provide high-quality education to children at the primary and secondary levels in line with the national curriculum in addition to providing cultural, religious, moral and sports education with the aim of producing well-rounded individuals who could make a positive contribution to Guyana.
The Sabha looks forward to the usual support from Guyanese for this concert which is in aid of two very worthy causes.
