ACORN International

Please enjoy this repeat from Wade Rathke: Chief Organizer Blog from August 8th, 2012 while Wade is off the grid today.  We just love those kids from Dharavi Rocks!

Dharavi Rocks

Our most popular project of ACORN Foundation (India) is Dharavi Rocks.   Dharavi Rocks works with children who work as ragpickers (waste collectors) and live in the slums to teach them music.  The kids make drums from plastic boxes and tins.   This is footage of Dharavi Rocks’ rehearsals captured by ACORN India in Mumbai in June 2012.
