One of the great successes of the Rwanda Youth Music program, is that young people like Leontine, who received Musicians without Borders training as Community Music Leaders, are now finding opportunities with other organizations to train and teach music.
This pathway from trainees to Community Music Leaders to teachers and trainers is something that makes us all very proud.
Please support these amazing Community Music Leaders in their journey, finding ever new ways to support the needs of young people in Rwanda.
When fear of ‘the other’ is used to divide and control, connecting people across divides becomes a radical act. We train musicians to empower people who, as refugees, are often marginalized, maligned and excluded. We celebrate their talents and help build connections with their new communities.
Music can offer safety to the most vulnerable, community to the displaced, and a voice to the unheard.
We need your support to continue this work! Please give today.
