Please join us for a performance of a very special musical show Jai Jagat. Created by 17 amazing children from the underprivileged communities of Ahmedabad in Gujarat, India, the show will be an inspiring story with a message about how our planet rediscovered the most important thing humanity has ever known: love.
These inspirational youngsters have travelled to Leicester with the support of DMU's charity partner, Manav Sadhna. They have been rehearsing for months on the show and will arrive in Leicester fresh from an epic tour of the USA. DMUlocal through its award-winning Square Mile India programme is sponsoring the performance at TheVenue@DMU. Tickets are free but if you would like to make a donation towards the work of Manav Sadhna it would be appreciated enormously.
The charity is based in the Gandhi Ashram in Gujarat and this year marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of Mahatma Gandhi.
Woven into this tribute to our planet are threads of inspiration from peace legends of our times; Mahatma Gandhi, Wangari Maathai (the Kenyan woman responsible for the planting of 50 million trees), Malala Yousafzai (the phenomenal young ambassador for female education), Yusra Mardini (the courageous swimmer and Syrian refugee who made the Olympics), Masahisa Goi (a spiritual leader from Japan whose peace prayer movement circles the globe), and many more.
