What Can I Donate?
As a non-profit working with Haiti, these COVID-19 times can be extra hard. Not only are we unable to travel at this time, our partners and schools in Haiti are suffering.
One such school that we support had all their instruments stolen while the school was unattended due to travel restrictions.
We are moving towards a plan to offer virtual music lessons both in Port-Au-Prince and Cap Hatien.
To do this we need to get specific supplies to our schools. So right now, our focus is on fundraising versus physical equipment donations because many items needed would be too expensive to ship.
We need to purchase generators, projector screens, computer equipment and eventually solar panels. As you can imagine these items do not come cheap.
Help us bring music classes back to our students, so we can bring back a little normalcy.
When we arrive, we are teaching in Cap-Haïtien and La Gonâve, but we are also working with and feeding the local community and getting to know the locals on a more personal level. We also use the cash and other donations to help with feeding, clothing and educating the people we serve.
It costs about $2 per child to feed a child a meal and we often do that several times to our students or children at local orphanages during our trips.
Please help us with your generous donations.
We are also always accepting instruments and other supplies to accompany us on our trips to Haiti. One of the difficulties with traveling are the weight restrictions and costs for checking bags. At approximately $70 per checked bag beyond our one allowance it costs several hundred dollars just to transport our donations with each trip. Just another reason cash donations are critical.
