In 2008 she founded "Music Basti", a program that seeks to positively affect the lives of at-risk youth and ‘street’ children through music. Faith’s work aims to identify, mobilize, train and motivate young artists and volunteers on issues of child rights, protection and participation so that they can effectively work with at-risk youth and children. Since 2008, “Music Basti” has worked with over 500 artists and volunteers, and affected directly over 500 at-risk children and youth. Faith is also the recipient of the prestigious “Real Heroes” National Award 2011 for Youth (CNN IBN and Reliance Industries) and the “Karamveer Puraskaar” 2011, a National Award for Social Entrepreneurship. “Music Basti” has also participated in the British Council’s ‘India’s Connections through Culture Program’ 2011 in the UK, and been a part of the State Department of the United States' “International Visitor Leadership Program” on Youth Leadership and Civic Participation in 2012.
