It was just a year ago that I asked you to take a risk with me--a risk that was so big, if we won, it would change the destiny for hundreds of children and Music Camp International for years to come.
Because of your support, we took that risk--and we WON!
Our first Music Camp for the children of Pata Rât did what no one else had done--put the four sub-communities together into one project where the children had to work together, celebrate one another, and perform a concert of five songs in three languages in just 5 days.
Last September, children who lived on the garbage dump went to school for the first time!
Then, just a litle over a month ago we conducted our 2nd Music Camp for the children of Pata Rât. This year we began at a much higher level--and met with even greater success.
Last Wednesday we launched what I promised the parents we would do--provide a daily afterschool program for their children to provide literacy and educational support along with music instruction and ensemble participation.
It's a revolutionary idea--but research documents the close relationship between music and literacy AND music and staying in school. They are a powerful partnership!
Because of our tremendous need for start-up money, we launched an Indiegogo Campaign at the beginning of September. It's short and to the point.
So grab a cup of coffee or tea, and take a few minutes to watch what can happen when you dream big dreams and have a team of supporters, assistants, and teachers. The children are ready--and registered! Classes began last Wednesday. Our Indiegogo Campaign has launched--but we need your help to meet our goal. We cannot continue without your help.
