A Year of Outreach to Young Refugees in Rwanda
June 17, 2016   Rwanda

Over the past 12 months, our team of MwB Community Music Leaders in Rwanda have facilitated 23 outreach events for young people living as refugees in Rwanda. They have worked at Kiziba, Mugombwa, Gihembe, Nyabiheke and Kigeme refugee camps; Nyanza and Bugesera reception camps; and in Kigali with the urban refugee population.

Thirty young music leaders have been employed by Musicians without Borders to do this work.

Over 3000 children and youth have participated.

Here are some pictures to better illustrate the music-making!
