Many children in Kalimpong, District Darjeeling, have great musical potential but never come to know it. Due to very low family income, education and professional training are out of reach. These children receive neither encouragement nor the experience of success. A significant improvement of their lives is unlikely.
In the My Peace Music Institute - a small not-for-profit initiative - some of them get the chance to discover their potential and receive a free education to become music teachers.
Simultaneously the institute strives at providing funds for the children to complete a higher education.
Presently 34 boys and girls are in the program. All instruments are provided by the institute. Exams are conducted in association with the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music London (ABRSM).
