About Rang De Chapter

Rang De Chapters constitute a group of passionate individuals who are keen on contributing to social change for the underprivileged. A Rang De Chapter can be set up in any city, corporate or institution (universities, schools, societies, etc). As long as the core team members believe in Rang De and have a few people who share its mission, a chapter can be created to spread the cheer!

The Chapters work towards facilitating social change in India and it a more equitable place to live in by participating in change and engaging more individuals in for the same cause.

How a Chapter Works?

The Chapters work on numerous angles-

  • - Building Rang De profile and awareness in the location, firm, university etc they are based in.
  • - Engage corporates, groups, universities, resident associations, societies, individuals, media with Rang De in their location of living for various purposes.
  • - Conduct events (speaker engagements, social topic related events through Box Office, etc) ,fundraising (online/offline, marathon runs, etc) ; attending relevant events for Rang De etc.
  • - Work with video editors, technology volunteers etc in their locality to support Rang De work.
