Our activities in India began in 2015, in Hyderabad, Telangana. Many communities there live in poverty, where poor living conditions and social exclusion are taking their toll on the mental and social development of children. An ageing population has also seen an increase in people living with dementia, presenting a relatively new challenge for the country’s care system.

Unlike many of the countries where we work, music therapy training courses do exist in India, although they are relatively new and graduate numbers are small. Wherever possible we work alongside local music therapists to deliver our activities.
