Let’s Play Asia arose from a deep understanding that music has a power to change young people’s lives through reinforcing, expanding, and innovating music education in public schools in the Philippines. In 2017, Kasper Hansen established a personal fund-raiser created to inspire, connect and celebrate the positive power of music in the lives of the students of Malabon National High School with a mission to provide every student with free music lessons, musical instruments, technology and mentoring.
This mission to empower the youth through music education resonated with our own values as an organization. We believe music and education has the power to transform lives. There are many children around the country who delight in learning, yet do not have the privilege. It’s up to us and our partnership with Let’s Play to help give them the means to do that.
As one of the first corporate sponsors of Let’s Play, Booth & Partners heartily donates its time, talent and resources to help the organization spread music education to communities, helping particularly with accounting, social media management, IT, school visits and operational issues on the ground.
Individuals and organizations has a great power to “give back” and we support Let’s Play’s goals of providing music education by providing the students laptops for their online learning, donating locally sourced instruments to support our local manufacturers, and promoting local leadership, where we give teachers and community leaders an opportunity to lead Let’s Play’s music programs.
Let’s Play Asia came up with a brilliant idea to help the kids further unleash their musical creativity through a music video making contest entitled, “The Let’s Play Tugtugan Challenge.” Along with other sponsors of Let’s Play, Booth & Partners was given the opportunity to work with three partner schools to collaborate with the students in creating their video entries. The winning school won Php 50,000 worth of music instruments.
