Children In Harmony: Amani Project
Amani Project supports local organizations around the world to provide opportunities for young people to embrace music-making and social and emotional learning as a way to explore emotional health, connectedness, and community engagement.
We build robust programming that is adaptable for Community-Based Organizations (CBOs) and their communities. We do this by focusing on Creative Youth Development (CYD) while also weaving together the expertise of local stakeholders across profession, role, gender, and age. We continue to build capacity with our partners and community members to ensure the longevity of our collective impact.
We believe the combined power of music-making and emotional learning has the ability to help young people understand and effectively communicate their emotions, and develop the resilience and the skills needed to become action-takers and decision-makers in their communities.

Why Donate Crypto Directly? Taxes!
There’s a reason high net worth individuals tend to donate property instead of cash. Donating cryptocurrency directly to a 501c3 nonprofit is more tax efficient and can save you money.
The IRS classifies cryptocurrency as property for tax purposes which means it is typically the most tax efficient way to support your favorite cause. When donating crypto, You receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of the crypto, and you avoid the capital gains tax you would have incurred if you had sold the crypto and then made a donation. That means you’re able to donate more, as well as deduct more on your tax return. The difference? Sometimes more than 30%.
If you provide an email, you will automatically receive a tax receipt after donating.
Why donate Bitcoin?
A world where young people use music to amplify the power of their emotions to feel connected with one another. Amani means “Harmony” in Swahili; and while that is a musical term, we also think about harmony as what it can be like to live in a community where everyone has access to what they need to thrive.
