BENEFITING: TECHNOLOGY INSTITUTE FOR MUSIC EDUCATORS
HOURS PLEDGED: 100
There's compelling evidence to show that studying music makes kids learn more in all subjects. Yet, music and the arts are exactly what's missing in the schools of developing countries. Technology literacy is also an essential in the 21st century. Combining the two can have a dramatic effect on education that will pay dividends in the future by developing a creative, tech savvy population.
This project seeks to build computer labs in schools in the developing nations of Southeast Asia and provide instruction in music through distance learning. 100% of all donations goes directly to the project. There are NO administrative costs outside of Crowdrise fees (approx 7.5%)
The first schools we will be supporting are Royal University of Fine Arts and the Secondary School of Fine Arts in Phnom Penh, Phum Thnal Primary School in Siem Reap and Gitameit Music Center in Yangon, Myanmar.
