Welcome to Melody School
With an “if you can dream it, you can do it” mindset, Melody School was built from one man's heart. That man would be Igor Xoyon, the school's principal. The story came to life as a one room school with five children. It is now home to over 70 children, seven classrooms and continues to grow.
The families of these children have the toughest of life choices to make: do I feed my children or buy them shoes? It is about survival, not education. Without the kind support of like-minded people who believe every child deserves an education, these children would never learn to read or write. The impact ripples through the whole family, changing their lives in one generation. Under the tutelage of this small but dedicated team of educators, they now dream of becoming teachers, nurses or doctors.
Melody School receives no government funding. Keeping the children in school and bringing new children into the fold depends totally on the generosity of donors.
It has taken many hearts and hands to build both the physical structure of the school as well as support and sponsorship for each child.
Help us change the world through education, one child at a time.
"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."
- Nelson Mandela
