Help us keep on keepin' on

The most urgent need that we've been focusing on has been to provide support to enable promising young Altai throat-singers to continue their training. The throat-singers are the traditional keepers of culture and history for the Altai people, and as such, their development as leaders is crucial to the survival of the culture.

Optimally, your donation would be on-going, because the youths can only commit to continuing their training if they can be assured of sustenance. A monthly stipend of $75 per month has been requested for each of a half-dozen young singers, but that amount can also be divided among several people.

Thank you for you on-going support!
