Altai youth shines in St. Petersburg


Viktor, one of our gifted young throat-singers was invited to a national festival in St. Petersburg. It was his chance to shine -- and shine he did, winning first place in the throat-singing contest.

But it was only with donations through GlobalGiving that he had travel money to go. We were very grateful for the resources to enable Viktor to succeed not only in his own life, but as the hopeful next generation of a reviving culture.

Please consider a recurring donation or a generous year-end contribution that will enable Viktor to continue to develop his gifts, which are at the core of the threatened Altai culture.

Thank you for your continuing support.
