Team members from Karsun Solutions recently joined together to support children’s education at a fundraiser for the Organization to Provide EducatioN (OPEN). Held near its Herndon, Virginia headquarters, Karsun Solutions was the event sponsor for the annual OPEN Rasika concert. Through this event, Karsun enabled critical educational opportunities for disadvantaged children in India. Performing in nearby Sterling, Virginia the Rasika concert brought together musicians from across the United States in support of the non-profit OPEN organization. The program was compered by film star Anu Hasan.

Founded in 2003, the 501(c)(3) charity has granted more than $950,000, benefiting more than 33,000 children and 105 schools. OPEN provides educational opportunities to children and young adults in India. These educational projects include scholastic aid, supplemental classes and the funding of libraries and other extracurricular programs. The organization is primarily funded through individual and corporate donations, employer-matching contributions, and biennial fundraisers. To donate or learn more about the valuable education work performed by OPEN visit openindia.org.

OPEN is one of several organizations regularly supported by Karsun Solutions. Karsun’s support of this event is one of many ways the company strives to connect local IT leaders with the global community. Mentorship within local organizations and schools is part of Karsun’s commitment to developing the next generation of IT leadership.
