Refugees want parity, not charity.
Since the Syrian civil war officially began on March 15, 2011, the Syrian refugee crisis has become the largest refugee and displacement crisis of our time.

Kathmandu Jazz Conservatory
Supporting access to music as a source of integration and a gateway to employment.
Founded in 2007, The Kathmandu Jazz Conservatory (KJC) is the only music institution in Nepal dedicated to learning Western classical and contemporary music. In 2017, KJC established a 2-year Diploma Course to provide aspiring musicians with an education that supports and empowers the local music scene. This course also prepares students to be eligible for admission to bachelor's level studies in Europe and the U.S., which will eventually contribute to creating a more vibrant and dynamic local music scene.
We believe that ensuring access to music education is needed now more than ever, especially in Nepal where the vast majority of resources are not available even to the wealthiest population and the Covid-19 crisis is likely to continue having great economic and social consequences. With so many students struggling financially, KJC’s main goal is to allow them to complete their music education.
By choosing to donate to KJC, you will be helping Nepali students to complete their Diploma Course and enable them to pursue a professional career in music.
