The Subramaniam Academy of Performing Arts (SaPa) has joined hands with the Model United Nations (MUN Impact) headquarters in New York, to encourage children to work towards the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) this summer. SaPa – Subramaniam Academy of Performing Arts is led by singer-songwriter Bindu Subramaniam and violinist Ambi Subramaniam, both children of ace violinist L Subramaniam.
On April 15, 2021, SaPa and MUN Impact are launching the Deed-A-Day challenge, a 30-day summer initiative that encourages children to sprint towards the 100,000 deeds faster and together. The challenge will be launched with a virtual open house session that will be streamed live on SaPa’s Facebook pages. The deeds themselves will be COVID-compliant, and children will be taught how to make a difference from the safety of their homes.
The 100,000 Deeds challenge was launched in 2020. It was inspired by SaPa’s 10,000 Deeds campaign, which was launched in 2017. The idea behind these campaigns is to send children the message that, if we all take small steps (or complete deeds) together, we can change the world. Some examples of deeds include donating old clothes in good condition (to advance the SDG of eliminating poverty) and responsibly recycling electronic waste (to advance the SDG of climate action).
“When we launched the 10,000 deeds campaign in 2017, we wanted to teach children that no action is too insignificant. Today, it’s wonderful to see the new heights we can reach by partnering with the Model United Nations – MUN Impact – and scaling to 100,000 deeds. I can’t wait to see where this takes us, and what ideas the students have to share,” says Bindu Subramaniam, Dean, SaPa India, on the association.
Adds Ambi Subramaniam, Associate Dean, SaPa, “It’s such a pleasure to join hands with MUN Impact, and encourage students worldwide to take small steps and make a huge difference. I’m incredibly excited to see what the 100,000 deeds project has in store for us.”
The official 100,000 Deeds campaign anthem is Superheroes Without Capes, written by Bindu and Ambi Subramaniam, as part of The Thayir Sadam Project.
