Dharavi Rocks is a joint educational project between Acorn Foundation’s Dharavi Project and the blueFROG club relating music, dance and art to environmental issues. Call it ‘Education through Recreation’.

The MISSION is to give slum kids a voice by initiating them into music, bringing positive creative experiences into their lives and creating a bond between communities (the project brings together kids from different backgrounds and communities to gain an understanding of each other). Music makes a difference, it educates, improves learning skills, self-discipline, self-confidence, encourages teamwork, improves social skills, temperament and community life.

Regular workshops are conducted with the children and musicians from India and all over the world. This provides the children with a much needed and regular recreational outlet, exposes them to music and musicians, gives them confidence, hones their skills and eventually showcases these to an appreciative audience in the form of a concert where well-known musicians participating in the workshops, perform with the kids and funds are raised.

All three artists performing have been deeply committed to the Dharavi Rocks movement and regularly give their support by performing with the band ‘Dharavi Rocks’, made up of kids from the program.
