We use music to bridge divides, connect communities, and heal the wounds of war.
After 5 years working under the banner of Musicians without Borders, we are proud to announce that our partner organization Musicians without Borders UK has established itself as an independent organization. From May 2015, Musicians without Borders UK will be known as Music Action International (MAI).

From July 11-18, Musicians without Borders led a ‘Training of Trainers’ at the Lioba School for Peace in the Netherlands. This training was the first of its kind, building our capacity to deliver community music programs within current and post conflict regions around the world.
We are warmly welcomed by the young people with singing & clapping and hugs & handshakes. Currently 30 kids and young people aged 4 to 30 with a range of needs attend the centre. I have lots of questions about logistics and curiosities about the clinical work but all of these will have to wait.
