Cake for Calcutta
- because we all know cake makes
the world a better place
Kolkata (Calcutta) is known for being the home of Mother Teresa showing amazing compassion to the poor. It is known for its intense poverty and has been described as a place that ‘assaults all the senses’. Songachi is an area in the north of the city with several hundred multi-story brothels, housing around 10,000 sex workers.
Alice will work as a Music Therapist with women and children in this community, working alongside the local charities that she has built relationship with on many previous visits. Music is innately part of us, and even more within our language and culture. It often speaks straight to our hearts, therein facilitating expressive communication, change, and new "conversations". 'Where words fail, music speaks'.
Your donations would go towards the costs of providing good quality musical percussion instruments and ongoing support through Music Therapy supervision via skype. If you would like to be kept up to date or find out more about the project and why it is such a worthwhile cause that deserves all the support it can get, please follow Alice's blog.
