The partnership with ISP provides Happy Caravan students and volunteers with an opportunity to make connections with teachers and students from all around the world. The ISP teachers have been our main educational support ever since July 2017. Together with our long-term volunteers, they created the original Happy Caravan School program, and regularly visit Happy Caravan to monitor the curriculum development, train and consult our volunteers and role model good teaching practices.
Connect by Music is a Dutch nonprofit that supports children and adults living in refugee camps with music activities including instrument lessons, singing circle, and music therapy. Since forming this partnership, we consider ourselves sister organizations as we found our values and missions align, and together we are stronger and can touch more lives through our work.
Our volunteers share a house and car with Connect by Music volunteers, and we work collaboratively in the camps of Malakasa and Thermopyles.
