Hi, I am Sona Ramachandra. Originally from Bangalore, India, I am currently living in Cologne, Germany. Although an engineer by profession, I have always had a fascination and passion for travel, arts, music and books since childhood and love dabbling in Indian folk art and calligraphy. So much to learn and explore. “Be infinitely curious” is what I believe. I am very thankful for this opportunity to do my small bit towards Arts-4-Good. Arts-4-Good is not only a wonderful medium for celebrating art and artists, but also a great way of encouraging and empowering initiatives like Aarti for Girls.
Hi, I am Anvesh Jandagudem. Born and brought up in India. I am a freestyle dancer and part time instructor for non-classical Indian dance forms like Tollywood, Bollywood and Bhangra. I believe that anybody can dance and the best way to dance with your soul is to dance like nobody's watching you. Looking forward to doing my part in helping the Aarti home by volunteering for A4G. You can find me on Instagram.
Hello, I am Hannah Streit and I had the honor to do a voluntary service in Kadapa in the Aarti Home project. This experience was really very enriching for me. The Aarti project consists of an orphanage for girls, a school and a women empowerment project. I really experienced the management of the Aarti project as kind-hearted people who help wherever they can. And they really do it in a well-considered way. Not only do you take great care of the well-being of the children, you also teach them a lot about sustainability and love for your neighbor. I am really enthusiastic about this valuable work of the Aarti project and it always inspires something new. Not only did I experience an enriching and educational time in the Aarti project, but I also found a second family. Since the Aarti Home is an NGO, it lives on donations. When I found out, after my voluntary service, that A4G was making art for donations for the Aarti Home, I was thrilled. I am an art enthusiast myself and am happy to be part of the A4G team. I think this way you can enjoy art in a completely different way, knowing that every purchase of a work of art benefits the boys and girls of the Aarti project.
A happy Home Maker, now living in Köln is fond of painting with little ones. As there is a saying in Tamil - கற்றது கைமண் அளவு, கல்லாதது உலகளவு (What you have learned is a mere handful; What you haven't learned is the size of the world); she says "I am in the process of exploring new things in the painting world...". You can follow her on her FB page.
A professional Logo Designer, living in West Bengal (India). She has volunteered to design a beautiful logo for A4G. She volunteered hours from her professional life and created couple of proposals and after discussing with our volunteers, finalized the logo that we are officially using now. She gave A4G a beautiful face, and A4G is thankful to her for her support. If you want her to design a logo for you, please contact her on her Instagram account.
