Music: a fundamental human right

"When we start a workshop in a refugee center, many of us are strangers to each other. Yet, generally, within a few minutes we are playing together with the openheartedness of children. That’s the power of music – it bridges the divides of language, origin, cultures and customs. It can lift a weary heart and heal trust that has been broken. What a way to welcome new people to my country!"
- Franka, workshop leader

Support young Community Music Leaders in Rwanda
Help raise €7500 to continue and to expand their amazing work.
People tend to think music is a luxury but for many children with less fortunate lives music is an absolute necessity to fight hopelessness and to feel connected to one another.  To support these children, we train and employ young people as Community Music Leaders with the skills to use music to bring an experience of community, safety, creativity and joy to children who too often face isolation, danger, stagnation and sadness.  Our project is awesome because of its ripple effect; with every youth leader we train, another 100 children will benefit from their music skills. 

With your help, we will train 15 more Community Music Leaders, and support our team of  30 experienced Community Music Leaders to work with over 1000 children in 2017: former street children; young people facing profound challenges; and children affected by HIV.

Through life-affirming music and connection to their cultural roots, children will feel the support and value that they so richly deserve.
