From December 13 – 23 I’ll be in Kathmandu, Nepal in conjunction with my work as an executive board member of the HEARTbeats Foundation, a 501(c)3 charitable organization which strives to help children in need harness the power of music to better cope with, and recover from, the extreme challenges of poverty and conflict. As the pilot country for this program, our team of education experts, artists, and musicians will spend several days working with children in Bhaktapur and Baglung…
I have a few guest bloggers lined up for the time while I’m away but I’ll also be blogging from Nepal about our efforts every day at the expedition’s blog so you can be a part of the trip. The bulk of our time will be in Bhaktapur, which is an ancient town in the east corner of Kathmandu Valley, working with children from the Unatti Foundation.
In addition to the music therapist and related musician experts, which include cellist Lynn Harrell, we are bringing along a film crew to document the entire process so I’m hoping to get some footage to post at the trip’s blog alongside photos.
So make sure you continue stopping by Adaptistration every day to check out what’s in store from the guest authors and add the HEARTbeats Foundation Nepal blog to your RSS reader for the next few weeks, you’ll be glad you did!
WAIT!!! What About All The Big News Going On Right Now?!?
I’ll be posting links to breaking news from all of the recent hot spots via Adaptistration’s Twitter account, so if you don’t already follow, this is a good reason to start.
