We’re training youth leaders to use the power of music to address the effects of HIV in young people.
Last month, the 30 trainee Community Music Leaders in Kampala, came back together for a week focussed on creative music-making; developing their own creativity, and inviting the creativity of children participating in their workshops.
To lead the training, we welcomed Yaara Barbash, a percussionist and workshop facilitator, who has worked with Musicians without Borders in Rwanda and the Netherlands. She worked alongside two musicians from Rwanda, who have vast experience in community music-making.
During this third week of training, the young leaders learnt new techniques in song-writing, drum circle facilitation, guiding dance, and nonviolent communication.
