Develop a music and arts program for Thlat elementary and junior high school in Cambodia.
Raised Toward Goal
To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the High School of Music and Art Class of ‘69, the Cambodian School Project will create a music and art program for the Thlat elementary and junior high school, recently constructed in Siem Riep Province, one of Cambodia’s most well-known (Angkor Wat), yet poorest, provinces.
More than 300 children attend school here. The funds to build the school were raised by the Cambodian School Project and the project was implemented by the Life and Hope Association (LHA), a local organization run by Buddhist monks, and Give2Asia, a San Francisco-based non-profit specializing in grant administration in Asia. The majority of the funds to build the school were bequested by one of Dr. Jonathan Raskin’s patients, Arlette Brisson, upon her passing.
Now we need to raise $15,000 to create an arts curriculum at the school. As we all know, this will be an educational experience these young students will carry with them the rest of their lives. Can you help?
The $15,000 is enough to buy the necessary materials and pay for the program for one year. Continuing the program beyond one year is estimated to cost $300 per month, and should this round of fundraising prove successful, the Cambodian School Project, LHA, and Give2Asia will solicit additional funds to continue the project. Also, if more than $15,000 is raised, that money might be used to extend the length of the project.
