The Maya Musical by Teach for India

As a young woman at the outset of her career, Sanaya Bharucha rejected enviable corporate job offers and declined to pursue a master’s degree. Instead, she joined Teach for India, a nationwide movement to serve under-resourced communities. What is possible for low-income children with no previous exposure to the arts? To answer this question, Sanaya and her colleagues staged the “Maya Musical”, a production created in partnership with Broadway-based artists and starring the students themselves. In this persuasive talk, Sanaya narrates her experiences and presents the musical as a symbol of the kind of education every child deserves.
