The initiative which was first begun as free music class has now transformed into a full-fledged residential school. What started with a small group of twenty students, KSV now has 220 children under its care whose education is funded by the support of sponsors. All students are educated for free and typically, every student has two sponsors. Unlike other curriculums followed in the country, Kalkeri is unique in its division of syllabus. About 50% is given on academics and the rest 50%, on training the children in classical arts like Hindustani music, theatre, classical dances etc.
