In 2010 we initiated a program in the village of Katari, about 16 hours via jeep from Kathmandu in eastern Nepal. Every week nearly 20 children gather and study harmonium and musical theory in a tiny former storage room with instruments provided by PFCF.

The Nepali people living in the Terai face daily challenges that few of us in the western world could ever imagine, yet learning and performing music often becomes a primary source of healing and rejuvenation. PFCF’s vital effort continues to benefit each and every student in an amazing way and it’s all because of your support. The children have asked us to represent them. This is their message to you.
