Towards more Sustainability

NGO Registration

Khlong Toey Music Program strives to become an officially registered non-profit educational foundation in Thailand. It costs 200,000THB, roughly US $5,500, to register a foundation with the Thai government. This considerable amount of money can never be withdrawn from, and if the foundation closes, it must be transferred to a different non-profit.

We, the KTMP team, are very happy to announce that we have finally gathered that amount and we are now processing the documents to officially start our own registration! We are forever grateful to El Mercado and Negotech for their trust and support, and for allowing us to take that huge step forward!

There are a lot of benefits to being registered. We are very excited about this new journey as it will allow us to take KTMP to a whole new level!

NGO Registration

Khlong Toey Music Program strives to become an officially registered non-profit educational foundation in Thailand. That’s right: despite all of the hard work that so many people have put into the Program, a major financial roadblock has kept it from becoming an officially registered non-profit.

To become registered, the Thai government requires all educational non-profit foundations to submit a 200,000 THB (roughly US $5,500) deposit into a bank account. This considerable amount of money can never be withdrawn from, and if the foundation closes, it must be transferred to a different non-profit. There are huge benefits to being registered.

Collaborative Album

We have asked artists to send one original composition that would be included in a collaborative album, whose entire proceeds would go towards funding the program.

So far, we’ve had the honor of gathering 6 artists, covering a wide range of music from Nepali traditional songs to Australian blues, through modern classical piano, Thai pop, and handpan.

If you would like to contribute to our first album by donating one of your songs, please contact us at ktmp.info@gmail.com. We will be very happy to have you on board!

“PIMP MY UKULELE” CAMPAIGN

In order to move towards more sustainability, we’ve started selling our own products, thus generating a much-needed income for the program.

The “Pimp my ukulele” campaign is an ongoing project in which artists decorate and customise ukuleles for our program. Each instrument is then sold on internet to raise funds for our school.

From professional artists to Thai celebrities, the response has been completely overwhelming. We’re beyond grateful to these kind souls for their precious help, for finding the time to help us achieve our goals and for making our dreams possible. For more information about the campaign as well as pictures of all our ukuleles, you can view our Facebook album here.

For our first series of hand-painted ukuleles, we’ve partnered up with Socialgiver and Kaidee, and are selling the instruments on their websites.
