Hitham Trust, an initiative started by Bombay Jayashri, is born out of her deep desire to make a difference to society through the medium of music.

In the last twelve years, Jayashri, along with her students has been working to take music to rural schools and differently-abled individuals.

She is also the trustee at Bhoomika-True Gifts, an institution, which takes music to the old and the underprivileged. Special concerts staged at such centers bring a smile on every face by just listening to music.

Hitham, as the word suggests, aims to spread affection, kindness and good will through music, for the welfare of all. The key premise therefore, as Jayashri says is, “music heals, music spreads joy and music brings happiness.” The satisfaction that one gets by spreading the knowledge of music is beyond measure. Each one of us can contribute in a small way to bring music and harmony into the lives of many deserving and the lesser privileged.

Hitham has drawn out some areas of interest to begin with:

  • Teach music in rural schools or under-resourced areas.
  • Work with differently-abled children and teach them music to bring the element of joy into their lives, facilitating positive expression.
  • Develop a curriculum and sing-along music material for special children.
  • Conduct festive events to bring forth talents in music.
  • Hold music workshops to foster new learning among deserving and needy children.
  • Identify and train teachers in music who wish to be a part of the noble cause of spreading joy through music.

Hitham is currently reaching out to around 300 children along with “Swami Dayananda Educational Trust” (SDET) in Manjakudi, a village in South India, by conducting regular music classes since April 2014.

Hitham is also working with autistic children, taking regular classes for them.

Every little contribution will go a long way towards this noble cause. You can sponsor any specific initiative or, simply contribute to the trust.
