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!

In 2017, we reached over 10,000 young people through music in some of the world’s most vulnerable communities. We have seen music make a difference in their lives, building hope, confidence and connection among people affected by war and armed conflict.
There is still more work to be done.
Every person can make a difference through music. On June 21st we have invited musicians around the world to organize benefit concerts for World Wide Music Day, an annual celebration of the right to music.
Please join your voice with musicians around the world to help us bring music to where it is needed most.
