The Satya Devi Memorial Trust was established in 1992 in memory of Mrs. Satya Devi, a matriarch for a large Singhal/Aggarwal/Bansal/Goyal extended family in the South San Francisco Bay. SDMT’s central mission is to foster a love and talent for Hindustani music among the youth of the San Francisco Bay Area. Since its inception, the Trust has not only encouraged hundreds of young (and sometimes not so young!) musicians to further develop their ragas and their taals, but it has reached beyond – to the educational and social welfare needs of the poor in India.
SDMT has donated to organizations like the India Literacy Project, and in doing so, has joined hands with others in bringing closer the goal of education for at least some of the needy.
