WHO WE ARE
Khlong Toey Music Program (KTMP) is a non-profit organization born out of a passion to create positive social change through music. Based in Bangkok, Thailand, the Khlong Toey Music Program, teaches music and art for free to the underprivileged children of the Khlong Toey slum communities.
What we do
Opened in October 2012, our school provides a safe and uplifting space for underprivileged children, where self-esteem can strengthen and creativity flourish through weekly lessons, and regular performances. Through music and art, kids can open doors to new opportunities, make positive connections with others, dream big, and have lots of fun in the process.
How you can help
Donate: Our program relies heavily on private donations, to cover expenses for the school or fund activities for the children.
Volunteer: We are always looking for volunteers to join our team or help us during events!
Other ways to get involved: There are many opportunities to support us and help make a difference in our children’s lives.

FEATURED PROJECTS Art lessons at KTMP!
Thanks to Num, our art program coordinator, and an amazing team of volunteer teachers, we are now teaching art and crafts every Sunday from 2-4pm at KTMP. Visual arts have always played an important role in our school and we are very excited about all the possibilities this new program opens! A big thank you to our sponsor, Socialgiver, without whom this program wouldn’t exist!
