"The UVic Music Education Assistance Program (MEAP) is an organization led by members of the University of Victoria Student Music Educators' Association (UVSMEA) and UVic Music Education students. The MEAP raises funds through various events throughout the year, then uses those funds to purchase instruments and equipment for local school music programs with demonstrated financial need. The UVSMEA and MEAP believe that all children, regardless of their financial situation, deserve the opportunity to participate in music."
