ToGETHER IN MUSIC (TIM) PROJECT





Together In Music is designed to build relationships and make connections to the global community, providing safe spaces for migrant children to experience joy and improve their mental health.


The TIM project was initiated by Dr Rajeev Nagpal and Tim Seston in the fall of 2022. With his free zoom sessions, Tim shares music and also personal life stories to support children in basic English education. His program includes content that is carefully crafted to inspire others, with best practices in teaching and learning.


Music plays an important process in the mental health of migrant children. Music helps bring people together and partnering with I Light Global means that we have systems in place to honor all aspects of a child's well being.



TRaining volunteers to Build Community through Music





Karan Pardesi builds community by teaching music to migrant children in the remote Mt. Everest village of Himachal Pradesh. Through the TIM project, Karan and his students are able to connect with musicians in the United States through biweekly zoom meetings. Online they can share their music, practice their English, and feel part of a global community.



Tims band is Raising Money
to Benefit the Mental Health of Migrant Children





Raising money for any non-profit is an honorable and onerous task. TIM's Band makes it more enjoyable by sharing music and stories with potential donors here in the United States. By partnering with I Light Global we are able to host events locally that are models for the kind of communities that we are building globally:

Join us for a meal. Talk about the things you love to do. Share your stories.

Build connections with a diverse group of people that want to help all children thrive.
