Bhangra to Believe is a charity fundraiser organization seeking to give back to the community at large. Our organizers are comprised of female dancers from the award-winning team, Shaan Mutiyaaran Di, based in New York City. Our endless passion for the performing arts has united us on our mission to empower women and promote gender equality. Bhangra to Believe aims to instill hope, strength, and knowledge among young women worldwide in pursuit of breaking and surpassing gender barriers.
In its first year in 2014, Bhangra to Believe sold 200+ tickets and raised over $6,000 for Shishar Sevay, a non-profit, based in Kolkata, India that serves as a home for orphaned girls. This year, Bhangra to Believe aspires to educate young professionals, while creating an interactive, motivating, and entertaining environment.
This year, we will be supporting Girls Inc. of NYC (GINYC). GINYC inspires all girls to be strong, smart, and bold through life- changing programs and experiences that help them navigate gender, economic, and social barriers.
Research-based curricula, delivered by trained mentoring professionals in a positive all-girls environment equip girls to achieve academically; lead healthy and physically active lives; manage money; navigate media messages; and discover an interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).
