Salaam Bombay Foundation works with children growing up in “at risk” environments, in Mumbai’s slums. Salaam Bombay seeks to improve their daily lives by instilling life skills and break the cycle of poverty by enhancing after-school job skills.
The Organisation started with a vision of empowering children to make the right choices for their health, education and livelihood and commit them to stay in school.

 Unlocking The Potential of Underprivileged Children Through Innovative Techniques
Priyanka is 16 years old. Her parents and five siblings live in the slums of Kala Chowki, Abhyudaya Nagar in Mumbai. The seven members of her family crowd a small ten-foot square space. Her father works as a delivery man for a pharmacy. Her mother works at home. Their combined household income for seven people is Rs.10000 about ($154). She is the lead and principal dancer in most performances. She has developed strong leadership skills and impressive interpersonal qualities. It is Priyanka who trains new recruits to the Academy. It is she who instructs young dancers in the basic steps of Kathak. Priyanka is so famous now for her talent that she is called upon by the local dancers to choreograph their dance numbers. Her choreography has won her fame and her dances are much appreciated well beyond in the slum neighborhood of her childhood. Priyanka has many public performances to her credit - Kalaghoda Festival, Priyadarshini Park, the biggest Diwali party in Mumbai, the WE concert and many more important events. Priyanka is grace personified. When introduced to Salaam Bombay in 2012, Priyanka did not know Kathak existed as a dance form. Classical dance was new to her. In no time at all, dance became her passion. From the start Priyanka demonstrated natural talent, as if she were born to embody the dance form.
 Empowering Underprivileged Children Through Innovative Education Techniques
Shruti is a student of Andheri (W) English Medium School. She is the second year of the Salaam Bombay Media Academy. Her father is an electrician and her mother a housemaid. Shruti grew up in Hyderabad where the local language is Telegu. When she moved with her parents to Mumbai in the Grade 5, she neither spoke, wrote nor understood any Hindi. This created barriers in her ability to make friends, perform in class or take part in any group activity. So Shruti became a loner and had no one except her mother for company. Her efforts showed in her academics and she was judged the Best Student of the Year last year. The girl blossomed and is now an avid photographer. Her pictures do the talking and convey what she could not for a long time. The Media Academy focused on her written and spoken language skills while exposing her to photography, photo journalism, visits to a printing press, etc. Her grit and determination resulted in her picking up the nuances of the language early on.
