First Tomorrowland music school in Nepal
The world-famous Tomorrowland festival teamed up with Cunina vzw to finance the first ‘Love Tomorrow Music & Arts School’ in Nepal. The school encourages the creative musical talents of Nepalese children and young people.
The new music school is located in Sekha, a mountain village in the heart of the Nepalese Himalayas at an astonishing height of 1870 metres. The school provides 300 children with an education in music, dance, reading, writing and maths. They not only learn to play the guitar, flute and keyboard, but also authentic Nepalese instruments. A school that can make quite a difference when only half of all Nepalese children even go to school and a mere 30% of all young people are able to write. There are further plans to build some more schools in needy areas.
Been to Tomorrowland in the last 2 years? Then it's likely that you contributed to this project. For every Tomorrowland flag sold, 5 euros went towards building the music school. It was also possible to use your wristband to donate to the Love Tomorrow Foundation. Cunina vzw has been making a contribution as well. This organisation is active in helping underprivileged children in Nepal. It is working hard to tackle the poor level education and aims to give children a fair chance. The Belgian DJ Lost Frequencies joined the children in celebrating the school's opening. “I had every opportunity in my own home and was given the freedom to develop my own creativity. I think it's fantastic that children here in Sekha will now also be given such an opportunity”, confirms the DJ.
