Music: a fundamental human right

"When we start a workshop in a refugee center, many of us are strangers to each other. Yet, generally, within a few minutes we are playing together with the openheartedness of children. That’s the power of music – it bridges the divides of language, origin, cultures and customs. It can lift a weary heart and heal trust that has been broken. What a way to welcome new people to my country!"
- Franka, workshop leader

Musical Playgrounds in Palestine
Laila_Ibrahim

Our program in Palestine has brought empowerment and joy through music to Palestinian children and youth since 2008. This year, we want to invite at least 2500 children from refugee camps and isolated villages to join the Musical Playground.

MwB’s young Palestinian workshop leaders will work with the children in West Bank refugee schools, using body percussion, rap, movement and voice to create outdoor performances with the whole school. We cooperate with Sounds of Palestine, whose children’s orchestra and singing classes will join in the Playground project.

This program needs your support today. More than 150 generous friends have already contributed more than EUR 12,000, please help us reach our goal of EUR 18,500 by the end of February:

The Musical Playground will be led by a great team of musicians, trainers and organizers. Meet them here: our staff.

On behalf of our team and all the children, thank you for supporting the Musical Playground!
