One Year Ago...
You helped save over 100 students from Afghanistan
Exactly one year ago, on September 11th, 2021, the Endpin Project held a benefit performance to raise money for two organizations: The Afghanistan National Institute of Music, dedicated to facilitating the escape of Afghanistan students, who were targeted by Taliban. While, Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund dedicated to assisting victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
September 11th, 2021 was a meaningful evening for all of us, marking the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The profound and unforgettable events of 9/11 continue to impact us today, paralleling the humanitarian crisis of the Taliban in Kabul, 20 years later.
You each came forward to support the performance with your generous donations, and we are writing today to give you our most sincere gratitude.
In the year that has passed, your contribution has helped the impossible to happen. Over 100 students, teachers and musicians were rescued from Kabul – of which had been targets of the Taliban for encouraging music education and the education of girls.
From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU for supporting our organization and our performance. THANK YOU for contributing to the rescue of so many people. THANK YOU for fighting for the right for girls to continue getting an education. THANK YOU for fighting for the right for young people to learn music. THANK YOU for allowing our organization of students to help other students. Our work has just begun and we continue to use music as a means to heal, mend, and connect with our communities.
Below, please find two articles about the successful rescue of the Afghanistan National Institute of Music students, teachers, and musicians, as well as the video that we showed one year ago.
With warm gratitude,
The Endpin Project
