Support 450 Disadvantaged Palestinian Children

Make a Direct Difference: PLEASE ACT TODAY!

The AACT (Affirmative Action for Children Today) reached an important milestone: 60 talented Palestinian children aged 8 – 10 year have been selected. They began their music education at the Beit Almusica Conservatory in December 2009.

The positive contribution of the project can be felt already after the first month of music classes. Rawi, from 3rd Grade, whose father is unemployed, started Qanun lessons in mid December 2009. Rawi is a very shy child and could face hard times at school. One day, when his mother picked him up from the Conservatory, she mentioned: “Since he started his music education at Beit Almusica, he became more self-confident and proud of himself. Especially after he saw children in his age playing at concerts he had an aim: to study music.”

Julia’s father is also unemployed. Julia (4th Grade) is now learning flute with Sahar Kardosh, teacher and flute player. Both, Julia’s mother and flute teacher could feel an important change in Julia’s behaviour: “Our whole home is undergoing a positive change in concert with Julia’s positive development,” said her mother.

Palestinian children in Israel are more vulnerable than ever before: 73% are at poverty risk (according to the Central Bureau of Statistics) and they need your help. With your support, we can contribute towards promoting a positive personal, social and cultural development of 60 children. This will open new perspectives for their future and will translate into a long-term improvement in their lives and their communities!

Our campaign goal is to raise $20,000. Be part of our quest.
