From 2004 onwards I came every year for 3 months to india to work as an volunteer in Isai Ma(i)yam Trust.

In 2009 I created our music band. People asking us often to perform for marriages, temple festivals and other kind of ceremonies. Finally I decided to stay and put all my energy in our project.

Now I have the full responsibility of the whole project and look carefully after all the separate projects that are in the Isai Ma(i)yam, it is fascinating and I enjoy everyday being here.

I think even a small Trust as our Isai Ma(I)yam can still play an important part to improve things in our our society.

For some time I was looking for a way to contribute to society, to help others who really need it and end of 2014 I’ve become familiar with Stichting Isai Ma(i)yam. Al most immediately I’ve left to India to visit the projects and the children. It is truly amazing to see what has been established there, an enormous accomplishment!

But there is much more which can be done to improve the situation of the children and I’ve come back from Indiawith a lot of positive energy to work on that.

I would like to contribute to a sustainable future of the foundation to ensure many more children can be helped.

Ivar Jenten, the founder of the Isai Ma(i)yam trust, came across my life in 1980. Mister Ivar attracted in many ways because he was helping the needy people by giving them good education and music lessons along with providing hygienic snacks. As well as employment, especially to the poor people. He also made them aware of the dangers of alcoholism.
 
All his activities encouraged me to work for the poor and needy people.
 
So since I started my own workshop in 1991 in manufacturing artistic leather work, I was able to settle down with my wife and two daughters and have a good life. That’s why I can give my free time to the Isai Ma(i)yam Trust.
 
I am happy to work for this good cause. My attitude is nothing is impossible, everything is possible.

I am the manager of our Gyatri Art School and I teach guitar.
 
As a teenager I came to the Isai Ma(i)yam Trust in 2004. Soon I started helping out with the younger children. Within a few months I  found myself playing music with Brigitte and Ivar. To make music with them made me so happy, so I started to teach music to the children in the Art School.
 
Later I founded our Isai Ma(i)yam Music Band. We play traditional Indian music and Bollywood songs, as well as popular western music. As I wanted to do more for our project, I recently became a trustee.
With this responsibility, I am sure I can support the children and other people who need help.
 
I am happy with our team and will give all the energy I have to our wonderful project to make it a success.
