-Music and the arts offer an alternative to a life lived in fear of sickness and slavery. The Academy of Music in Choma, Zambia, is battling AIDS and trafficking by offering students life through the arts.


-Along with a formal music education, students receive help for traditional schooling, prevention education for AIDS and human trafficking, basic needs provision, and career development involving vocational skills training, micro-enterprise and other livelihood opportunities.
-This summer, starting June 1st through July, I will be partnering with Poetice International to teach music at the Academy of Music in Choma, and I need your help!

- All funds donated will be used for travel costs, living expenses, and music supplies for the music academy. To learn more about Poetice International click here.
About Derek Derek Thompson grew up in Lino Lakes, Minnesota, with a passion for bowfishing, music, and Jesus. In the summer of 2012, after completing his freshman year at the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University majoring in oboe performance and music education, Derek, participated in a month-long outreach internship with Safe House of Hope (SHO Hope). SHO Hope works 24/7 to stop human trafficking in Baltimore. Now for this upcoming summer, Derek is looking to combine both, his interests in music and stopping modern-day slavery, into one endeavor. Please choose to support this exciting quest.
