HeeEun Park is a social worker of ‘Walking With Us’, a non-profit organization and is in charge of ‘Allkidstra’ project. She tries to move forward in the partnership with 10 local social welfare organizations, the board of directors and music teachers to achieve the sustainability of ‘Allkidstra’. In addition, in order to experience the development of the children through music, she joined an adult music orchestra of ‘Allkidstra’ as a member and plays the trumpet with the love for ‘Allkidstra’.
‘Allkidstra’ supports children to have the opportunity and experience of music education, playing music instruments and also having performances under the slogan ‘all children can play music in orchestra regardless of their socio-economic background’. This was started in 2009. For 8 years, 2,004 children have participated in this project and currently 290 children in 10 orchestras nationwide are experiencing a positive change through music.
Walking With Us, running ‘Allkidstra’ is a social welfare foundation established in 2010 pursuing the society that all children can fully realize their potential regardless the situation they are in. Including ‘Allkidstra’, they support children’s growth in terms of personality, intelligence and emotions by running various programs such as ‘Allkidstudy’ to tackle educational inequality, ‘Allkidsmile’ to support the youth’s independence and ‘Allkids Social Practice Institute’ to do field research in the areas of programs and children welfare.
