After sending out an urgent appeal to help secure funding for the delivery of an introductory skill-sharing project in Mynamar, just over a month ago, we were amazed by the response we received. We have managed to raise a staggering ÃÂ£4646.57. This secures enough funding for the first phase of this project to be implemented in September of this year and there may even be some left over to invest in the on-going support we know Local Partners need after initial training.
So as a direct result of everyone's generosity, two Israeli music therapists will be travelling to Yangon, Myanmar, for 4 weeks, to work with staff in special education schools and a centre for disability. The Israeli volunteers will support the local staff in establishing sustainable “music as therapy” programs that hope to enhance the emotional and social wellbeing of the children in their care. This project will be under the leadership of Tsvia Horesh and we look forward to keeping you updated with its progress.
