Throat-singer counselors around the cookfire
Thank you for your continued support of the sacred Altai culture. Your contribution during the winter is especially valuable, because materials for the construction of the new Altai cultural revival center must be ready to go when spring comes to Altai. The nice weather doesn't last long!
A great start was made last summer, with construction of the perimeter fencing, outhouse, outdoor kitchen shelter, and two small traditional buildings for sleeping and storage. Even at that interim stage a month-long summer music camp for local village children was organized -- using as counselors the young throat-singers whose education we support in a different project.
Protection of the Altai culture is a win for the whole world. Please give generously!
