CREATE FOUNDATION

Started CREATE Foundation (Children’s Research in Education Arts & Theatre Endowment) in loving memory of Pearl Padamsee as a public charitable trust on 8 th April 2002.The trust aims to devise a revolutionary system of education by using the creative arts (drama, music, dance and allied arts) to complement the existing curriculum followed by primary sections of ICSE and SSC schools, especially for under privileged and special children.

HER MISSION

The basis of her work with children is to provide a forum where they can discover and express themselves creatively and freely as individuals. Only then can they go on and make a difference in whatever avenue they pursue as adults. “Attitudinal change can be brought about by educating our children effectively.” THE EDGE ACADEMY (CORPORATE GROOMING) Shehas designed and executed a wide range of mega events. During her interaction with corporate management, a need was expressed for corporate modules which focus on enhancing the professional corporate image of the companies. And hence, The Edge Academy was born.
