The Afghanistan National Institute of Music

Our thoughts go out to our friends at ANIM and the Zohra Orchestra. Due to the recent events in Kabul in Afghanistan the doors of ANIM are closed. The students are staying at home, some too scared to bring their instruments home with them in fear of what could happen if they get stopped on the way.

There are some ways you can support them at this time:

  1. Donate to the US-based fundraiser "Friends of ANIM". Click here.

  2. Reach out to friends, colleagues and partners in your network who may be a resource
    for the present and future of the ANIM students via scholarships, diplomatic connections, opportunities and support.
