To commemorate 60 years of India's freedom, Naandi Foundation is launching a revolutionary 'Freedom of Expression' project. Through this, the Foundation will train underprivileged girls, men, women and youth with photography skills, so that in the 60th year of independence they can go one step further with the means to express their points of view to the rest of the country through images and their stories. These photos will be exhibited across the country next year on special occasions.

To help this project take off, and to raise contributions for it, Naandi is organising an exhibition of photographs taken by Rajendra Shaw, an award-winning photographer and a close associate of Naandi, from 6th to 8th October, at the Taj Krishna. Titled "Highlights and Silhouettes: Images From Rural India", the exhibition will showcase Rajendra Shaw's handpicked "best images" shot across different states.

For every contribution of Rs. 31,000, one can choose for free, a 3.3 x 2.3 ft framed image from the display showcased at the exhibition.

Rajendra Shaw was born in Kolkata, and after finishing school and college, went on to study at the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) in Pune. Graduating from FTII, he migrated to Hyderabad, and has ever since been providing support communication services to social organizations.

He served as the Director of the Centre for Development Communication, Hyderabad. He is now a freelancer, and takes up commissioned photography and video assignments for social organizations. Over the past two decades, his photos have been exhibited and published in India and the UK.

Set up in 1998, the Naandi Foundation is an autonomous, not-for-profit trust dedicated to changing lives of the under-served populations in India through public-private partnerships. Guiding Naandi in its initiatives is its board of trustees chaired by Dr. K Anji Reddy, Chairman of Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories Ltd. Other board members include eminent corporate citizens, business leaders, renowned social workers and leading economists, such as Anand Mahindra, Ramalinga Raju and Chiranjeevi.

Naandi is one of the largest national players in the development sector, working with national, international, corporate and civil society organisations to serve and empower underserved communities in urban, rural and tribal areas. Naandi's Safe Drinking Water Division has had major success in providing community-based safe drinking water solutions in India. The programs at present are focused in the coastal region of Andhra Pradesh. However, Naandi is expanding into more states of India.
