Palestinian Children in Israel are among the most disadvantaged. Please help 100 children, their families and communities, facing social and economic disadvantage reach a positive change through individual and group music education.
60% 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 music education to 100 children from low income families living in the Galilee region, indirectly benefiting their families and local communities.
Specially tailored programs in Western & Eastern music. Children will receive a partial scholarship for 1 year & a music instrument. They will participate in group & individual classes, creative & supportive activities, and small-scale public events.Children also take part in social empowerment workshops at least once a month during the school year.
Children will improve their personal, social, & learning skills while appreciating their identity & cultural heritage. The project promotes a positive integration in the society and opens perspectives for a brighter future to disadvantaged children.
