The Polish Aid Small Grants Programme collaborated with The Art of Music to purchase instruments and accessories for the Ghetto Classics programme, which serves over 500 children and youth in the Korogocho and Mukuru Kwa Reuben slums. The number of students has grown dramatically in recent years, and many students have had to share instruments. The lack of instruments severely limits the number of students we can reach, and purchasing more instruments will greatly assist us in reaching more children.
Project co-financed within the framework of the Polish development cooperation of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Poland. The implementation of the project entitled “Video conference centre to facilitate cancer patient care in Kenya and East Africa”
The aim of the project is to purchase musical instruments and accessories to support musically talented youth from Nairobi and Mombasa slum areas as a way to give hope and encouragement to explore their talents and gifts for a better life.
