MUMBAI: Delhi based strategic consultant Thyme has taken up the job of bringing private institutions and corporate under one roof to fight hunger. Thyme is organizing Music for Hunger, an Anoushka Shankar Live in Concert for the World Food Program in collaboration with the Ravishankar Institute for Music and Performing Arts with two main objectives. One is to raise awareness about the issue of malnutrition and hunger in India. The other is to raise the much-needed funds for WFP mother and child nutrition programs in India and for RIMPA programs.
World Food Program has assisted 1.55 million women and children in India in 2007 and is going strong in its mission to eradicate hunger. Today India has more than 220 million people who are hungry and chronically food insecure and is home to one third of the world’s underweight children.
This concert, which is scheduled to be held in Mumbai and Delhi on 18 and 20 February, respectively, looks forward to bring together various agencies and corporate under one mission i.e. Music for Hunger. Thyme’s charitable mission has garnered tremendous support from corporate like Oberoi (Mumbai), Jetlite, PVR, Barista, Suncity; Radio Mirchi, Pioneer and Hindustan Times.
