The first music school in CAR

Help us to fulfill childhood dreams

Why all of this?

The first music school in CAR is going to be a place where talented Africans from  the age 6 to 12 will receive professional education. We are convinced that only education can change Africa. Music in connection with education will help to alleviate tragic experiences related to war and rebellions. It will broaden horizons of many Africans which enable them to comprehend that their life situation depends on themselves. The certificates and qualifications gained in our school help students to find a job easier. The most talented of them will receive a scholarships to go abroad  that will give them the opportunity of studying and living in Europe and the USA.

Therefore our aim is to help to fulfil their dreams. You also can get involved.

 

 

Music helps people and in fact has a strong impact on their lives. In the country torn by war music classes full of fun, good atmosphere and novelty allow to forget for a moment about the difficult realities of everyday life.  In this case music will serve as a tool and help chil-dren to express themselves. Our school will embark everyone to the most beautiful world of art.

We also want to promote friendship and partnership between the two continents (Europe and Africa)  and to cultivate, share and present the culture of the Central African Republic. Doing all of that we help our students to recognise, develop and respect their cultural identity in which music plays a very important role.

If you see yourself in this project, want to promote our campaigne or you feel you could help and support us- please contact us.

 

We invite you to cooperation.
Together we can make a change!

TEACHERS

We need

130 000 Euro

What we need?

1
FEEDING FOR 30 CHILDREN + TEACHERS

Undernutrition is still a serious problem in CAR. We want to provide the children with comfortable conditions for studying and being active at school. Therefore, it is vital to make sure they are not hungry. At our school they will be given meals that they often do not get at home.

We need PLN 60 000

2
INSTRUMENTS, BOOKS, SOUND, PHOTOCOPYING DEVICE

Basic tools for working at school. We already have a few guitars, have made a percussion room, yet in order to conduct professional classes, we need many more instruments. Our priorities are: pianos (5 pcs), guitars (10 pcs), flutes (30 pcs), saxophones (5 pcs), trumpets (10 pcs). Some larger extra costs include a photocopying machine and sound for concerts.

We need PLN 235 000

3
PERSONNEL COSTS

The classes will be conducted by teachers who will fly to us from Poland and other European countries. Several teachers will come from the neighboring Cameroon. We are going to finance the costs of their vaccinations, tickets and their stay in CAR.

We need PLN 93 900

4
SCHOOL MAINTENANCE COSTS

In order for the school to function properly, we need to purchase a system of solar batteries and a right amount of fuel for power-generating units. This is the only way to ensure light and electricity for the school.

We need PLN 35 000
