“It’s an amazing way to build a community.
A happier community.
By music, by empathy, by connecting all together.”
Community Music Leaders, trained by Musicians without Borders, ran workshops with young children in eco-drumming. They built instruments together from objects normally thought of as trash, and then performed together their favorite songs.
In addition to strengthening community among the young people, the workshop also achieved a shift in consciousness towards issues of conservation and the environment.
We’re asking your support to raise funds to allow these young Community Music Leaders to continue and to expand their work.
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.
