Donate an Instrument – Give the Gift of Music to Girls Rescued from Slavery

Crooked Trails has been proud to support Maiti Nepal, and the work of its founder Anuradha Koirala, for many years. Maiti Nepal is an NGO working to rescue and rehabilitate girls and women sold into sexual slavery. They also work tirelessly on preventative education to try and reverse the horrific reality of human trafficking.

Crooked Trails Co-founder Chris Mackay has the following request on behalf of the girls at Maiti Nepal:

“The last time I was at Maiti Nepal, Anuradha was showing my group around the campus where young girls who were rescued are brought for love, healthcare, and education. One of the things the children love is playing music, and so Anuradha started a music class. When we visited, we were able to hear most of the kids play, but some we only “saw” – they were playing air instruments. I thought surely there are unused instruments in the U.S. I could get over there.”

And so we are asking our tribe. Do you have an instrument that is in good shape but not being played? Consider donating it to Crooked Trails and we will get it over to Nepal with our next group. All donations are tax deductible. Large instruments like tubas and trombones will be too difficult for us to send. If you have any questions, please contact me at chris (at) crookedtrails (dot) org.

Crooked Trails, Maiti Nepal, Anuradha and the girls thank you.
