Get Involved

In the short time since we began, we have managed to make a lot happen on very limited resources! However, to fulfil our dreams of reaching children across India we need further funds. We are eternally grateful to the individuals who have already very generously helped fund our work: without them none of this would be happening.

Here are some ways that you could help us to change the lives of so many more disadvantaged children in India.

Donate

Become a Friend

Our Friends Scheme gives us the confidence to continue expanding our activities, through regular monthly donations. Every donation makes a difference, no matter how small. You can either set up a regular donation here or download a Friends’ Form below.

Sponsor A Choir

Sponsoring a Songbound choir for a year costs just £500. We can then employ and train a local musician to deliver our syllabus, cover the running costs for rehearsals, and arrange for international musicians to deliver workshops throughout the year.

Give as you Live

You can support Songbound for FREE every time you shop via Give as you Live. Donate whilst shopping at over 4,300 top retailers, including Tesco, eBay, M&S, John Lewis and Iceland. Every time you shop via the Give as you Live website or app, a free donation will be made to us and it won’t cost you a penny extra!

Volunteer

Fundraise

There are many imaginative ways that you can raise funds for Songbound. In preparation for their trip to India in 2013, the choral scholars of the Jesus College, Cambridge ran around the college quadrangle in their cassocks! Please feel free to contact us for more ideas on how to organise a fundraising event.

Volunteer

We have a number of volunteer opportunities, both in India and in the UK. Please contact us to find out more.

Work with us

Become a Choir Leader

To be a Songbound Choir Leader in India you don’t need to be the world’s best singer. If you like music, can sing a tune, can laugh at yourself and like to work with children we would love to hear from you. We provide all our choir leaders with ongoing training opportunities from international and local experts so that they can develop the confidence and simple techniques needed to ensure their children reap the full benefits of group singing.

Collaborate With Us

Many professional musicians on tour in India struggle with the sad reality of performing exclusively to a concert-going elite in the most prestigious venues. We can provide musicians visiting India the opportunity to engage with the poverty they see daily on the streets, safe in the knowledge that their contribution will add to an ongoing programme of musical and social development in the most challenging communities.

If you are a professional, student or amateur musician or a music ensemble and would like to plan an Indian tour that makes a difference, we can help design tailor-made trips which include interactive workshops and performance events with our Songbound choirs.
