Oscar-winning musician A. R. Rahman’s “A. R. Rahman Foundation” wants to “make poverty history”.

As a first step towards achieving the vision of “strive towards making poverty history”, the Foundation will set up educational institutions and provide world class, state-of-the-art infrastructure and education to underprivileged children who do not have the means to access & fund their education.

This will equip them with knowledge and skill sets to pursue specialised higher studies that will provide them career opportunities to build a secure future for themselves and their families, Foundation states.

Rahman is giving live “Jai Ho” concert in Kolkata on November 14 in support of the Foundation.
