About the ProjectThis campaign started on November 01, 2013 This campaign finished on December 15, 2013
In fall 2013, 1A crowdfunded the purchase of instruments for the Sistema Armenia Youth Orchestra, an after-school program that teaches children the values of leadership, teamwork and community while developing their musical prowess. We exceeded our funding goal and ultimately purchased 4 cellos, 4 violas, 2 basses and 1 violin.
With the additional funding that the campaign brought in, a second musical program, Nexus, was launched. Nexus provides Armenian students with musical education to supplement the standard education they receive through the national curriculum and has gone on to establish a center in Yerevan where all students are welcomed to participate in a variety of programs focused on music and even visual arts.
