More Info

Harmony and Health is more than an innovative art, music and wellness program for kids. Thanks to these scholarship opportunities, kids from Bahia's most well-off and most challenged communities come together in the city's only youth program that promotes social inclusion and breaks down entrenched class barriers.

In addition to this invaluable experience for the kids, Harmony and Health provides employment for our 6 instructors, who represent the diverse cultural fabric of this region. These local musicians, artists, thespians and educators will share their passion and talents with our 25 enrolled students for the next two months.

The program costs $60 per child for each month to administer. If parents were unable to cover this cost, they completed a scholarship application which was reviewed and evaluated by our staff. If approved, families are being paired with donors who choose to sponsor a child for a half ($60) or full ($120) scholarship.

About Walking Palms Global Health

Harmony and Health is administered by Walking Palms Global Health, a non-profit organization committed to improving the health and well-being of communities and families facing frequent natural disasters. 

Walking Palms launched Harmony and Health in response to the devastating 2016 earthquake which struck this region, as the founders realized many children were suffering emotional trauma from the earthquake and its aftermath. Through music, art and meditation practices, kids came out of their shells and could truly begin the healing process. 

Several of the children in this summer's session lost their homes in the earthquake and are still in temporary housing or remain transient as their families look to regain a sense of stability in their lives.

The Jeffery Family will be covering the administrative and cash transfer fees associated with the Fundly platform, so 100% of your donation is tax deductible and goes towards the scholarship.

If our fundraising goal is surpassed, excess funds will be used to purchase additional materials, enhance existing projects and ensuring the next session of Harmony and Health gets off to a great start!
