Kathmandu Jazz Conservatory Foundation is a non-profit organization committed to providing high quality music education in Nepal.

We work with the KJC Music School which opened its doors in 2007 and has provided musical and creative education involving a big number of social projects. We are taking forward its legacy!

Our Foundation creates opportunities vulnerable children and adolescents. More than 500 students have received musical education thanks to individual donations, support from international organizations and regular fundraising events since KJC was born.

Our vision is a world where all children can access quality music education, same opportunities and rights, so they can achieve their fullest potential as artists, leaders, and global citizens.
