We have great news: Two donors will support this project, which has now a name: AACT (Affirmative Action for Children Today). Thanks to all contributions, we will be able to provide music education to 60 Palestinian children aged 8-10 years, facing social and economic disadvantage in Israel.
In order to ensure continuity of the programme we launched a Ã¢â‚¬ËœScholarships FundÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ for the benefit of those children that are keen and committed to continue their music education even after the termination of the project.
Please support a long-term improvement in the lives of 60 Palestinian children, their families and their communities in Israel today! Any contribution will be saved in the Scholarships Fund. Our campaign goal is $20,000 in one year!
The project will be carried out in local schools in Shefa-'Amr and lbillin. Teachers from Beit Al-Musica will conduct auditions in schools to identify children who show signs of musical promise. Five certified music teachers will provide each child with weekly private lessons (30 in all) in a Western or traditional Oriental musical instrument - violin, cello, oud, clarinet, viola, qanoun, and/or Arabic percussion. In addition to the lessons, the children will participate in public performances and enrichment activities. The project is expected to offer meaningful after-school activity for the children, to enhance their self esteem and foster positive integration into society.
Thanks to your support we reached the challenge!
Through your generous and crucial donation we have been invited to stay on the Global Giving UK site. More important than that: We will be able to support Palestinian children in Israel, facing social & economic disadvantage, to reach a positive change through music.
Your contribution matters! With the raised amount of £1,175 we will be able to provide music education at the highest standards to 6 children for 4 months. In addition, we will purchase 3 music instruments for their benefit.
Still we need your help to ensure that these children will be able to continue the one-year program and that more children can benefit from the project. Please forward the link to your friends!
We would be glad to provide you further information at your convenience.
