           Kalanand is a grant giving program for emerging artists in India aiming to support the artists who have completed their education or are self- taught and want to pursue their career in the field of fine art. The Kalanand program has fellowships that give financial aid along with recognition, an online presence and yearbooks printed and sent to all the leading art institutes, museums and art galleries across the country. 

        Sadanand is a community arts project with the aim of connecting young artists with the senior citizens and sharing happiness and love through their engagement with the arts. Ours is a country that values caring for the elders. At this challenging moment in time, the old age homes that we have worked with need additional financial support to provide for the elders that live there.
