Equal Resources for Music Education

A Peacemaking Project by Mira Z.

What is the injustice we are solving?

With this project, pre-owned instruments and donations will be collected to support underprivileged students who are aspiring musicians. Unfortunately, playing an instrument can be very expensive, and not all students who want to participate in this extracurricular activity are able to. By supporting these students through collection drives and fundraisers, they will be able to pursue their passion without the setback of high costs.

This is a fantastic idea! I played instruments when I was growing up, and it gives young people an incredible outlet to express themselves and teaches important skills -- but you're right that many students don't have access to this opportunity. Your idea is great way to solve a serious problem. Have you started collecting instruments yet? Or are you planning to get started soon?

Most importantly -- how can we help?

Hi Mira,

We wanted to let you know that we are extending the deadline for active projects to apply for a Mini-Grant during this Peace First Challenge to April 15th. You can apply for a mini-grant anytime, but meeting the Challenge deadlines will make you eligible for additional opportunities.

If you do not require a mini-grant to complete your project, you can remain eligible for the Accelerator by completing your project and Reflection before the May 31st deadline! If you submit your project plan by April 15th, we'll be sure to provide you with feedback by April 21st to support you with carrying out the plan.

If you are still in early stages of planning, you are also welcome to apply for a mini-grant at a later date -- although you may not be eligible for some of our larger opportunities, the opportunity for funding and support is always there.

Please let me know if you have any questions, and if we can help in any way!

Best,
Adrian
