NEW DELHI: As per the CSR commitment of Ek India Happywala, Sony Pictures Networks India (SPN) on Saturday launched its first music training room at the Bhondsi jail in Gurugram, in association with India Vision Foundation.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme, through its The Dhun Project, focuses on creating a positive impact on the social ecosystem and is built around three pillars – empowerment, education and environment, a press statement said.
“On the 5th anniversary of Sony MIX in 2016, Sony launched The Dhun Project for empowerment through music. Now, project aims to use the powerful medium of music for the rehabilitation of prison inmates, thus preparing them for a successful reintegration into society post their prison term,” the Sony statement added.
Under the project, SPN will also be setting up training centers in four more prisons across the nation – Rothak and Sonipat prisons in Haryana, and Dasna and Kasna prisons in Uttar Pradesh. The network, along with India Vision Foundation, has appointed special trainers (vocal and instrumental) who will visit the music center on a regular basis to train the prison inmates.
