Distributed across five separate ‘Impact-Weeks’, the Project will seek to render a most worthwhile and fitting experience to each child involved.

Balakalakaar is, by far, the largest event hosted across the AIESEC India network. This event has, over the last few years, established itself as the single largest, pan-Indian platform for socially and economically underprivileged children to showcase their artistic talents. The objective of this event is dual: to inculcate an awareness and appreciation towards the arts and to provide a platform to encourage the pursuit of the same. This year, AIESEC Chennai will host Balakalakaar as a culmination to the impact weeks that constitute Project Footprints. Bringing together some of the celebrated artistes and connoisseurs in the city’s artistic fabric, the event will include featured-performances, art competitions, talent shows and individualised sessions that will expose the children to art in all its multi-faceted relevance. Last year, Balakalakaar featured over 4,500 children from across the city and the event was aided by over 15 AIESEC interns from across six nations who contributed to success of the event and the satisfaction of the children.This year, Balakalakaar will seek to touch over 7,000 children’s lives.
