Tyungur Cultural Center launches kids' camp

The new Altai Cultural Center in Tyungur, Altai Republic, (which this project supports) started the summer off with a huge contribution to the local community -- a pro bono kids' camp for local children.

The month-long camp specialized in teaching the children about Altai throat-singing, as the counselors were all professional musicians-in-training.

In the future, this camp will organize professional cooperatives in other culturally important activities, such as bee-keeping and animal husbandry.

Your contributions support the development of these cooperatives.
