Bringing the Music Back to Kathmandu School

in In the Quaver Classroom!

When we heard of the devastation delivered by the earthquake in Nepal, we immediately thought of our friends at the Kathmandu International Study Centre (KISC).

Music teacher Hannah Dornon has been using Quaver in her classroom there since 2014.

kisc_logoOur team reached out right away to check on Hannah, her students, their families, and the facilities at KISC. We were pleased to hear back from her:

“Amazingly all KISC staff and students are alive with only minor injuries. Some of us are now homeless, but friends and neighbors have been incredibly generous in welcoming semi-permanent residents into their houses and onto their couches. We are still feeling aftershocks and tremors, but they seem to be getting smaller and farther apart. It’s so encouraging the amount of love and well-wishes reaching our way from all over the world.”

While no one in the KISC family was injured, the school did sustain damage to its stage, lighting equipment, and many of its musical instruments.

To help KISC get back on its feet, the Quaver Foundation (QFAME) has established the “Help Hannah Fund,” where every donation will be matched dollar for dollar by QFAME. Members of our Quaver team are donating to the fund to show support for this special school and its special teacher.

We encourage you to join us in bringing the music back to KISC.

If you’d like to join us in participating, you can do so at the Quaver Foundation website.
