Support 450 Disadvantaged Palestinian Children



Palestinian Children in Israel are among the most disadvantaged. Please help 450 children, their families and communities, facing social and economic disadvantage reach a positive change through individual and group music education.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

65% of Palestinian children in Israel live in poverty, mostly attending substandard schools, lacking meaningful after-school activities, living in localities without adequate infrastructure, facing discrimination, lacking perspectives for the future and facing an unstable social & political situation. The project will provide creative music education to 450 children from low income families living in the Galilee region, indirectly benefiting their families and local communities.

How will this project solve this problem?

With trained and capable staff, Beit Almusica will establish a network of community music workshops working in creative ways that involve children as creators of music rather than just recipients. Children can develop their musical talent, be creative and engage in meaningful activities promoting their personal development as well as the development of artistic skills.

Potential Long Term Impact

Children will improve their personal, social, and learning skills while appreciating their identity and cultural heritage. The project promotes a positive integration in the society and opens perspectives for a brighter future to disadvantaged children. On the long run, based on this pilot, a concept for the integration of creative music in schools and community centers could offer prospects for tens of thousands of children.
