Sangeet Sandya is a fundraiser program planned on Saturday, June 5, 2004 at 6:00 pm at the Keefe Technical High School auditorium in Framingham, MA by the Ekal Vidyalaya foundation.

To date, Ekal Vidyalaya is a movement of over 9,000 teachers, 2,000 voluntary workers, 10 field organizations (scattered in 16 Indian states), and 7 support agencies. With this tremendous human force, the Ekal Vidyalaya movement strives to create a network of non-formal schools that will educate and empower children in rural and tribal India.

The Ekal Vidyalaya Foundation is a charitable trust that initiates, supports, and runs non-formal one-teacher schools (popularly known as Ekal Vidyalayas) all over the country. With the participation of numerous non-profit trusts and organizations, this program has now become the greatest non-governmental education movement in the country.
