Be careful of culture

Be careful of culture / Because it can be lost

This is the chorus of Umuco (Culture), composed and performed by youth leaders and children in Rwanda.

They know.

When war comes, culture is lost. But more: when those who promote and profit from war gain power, culture is attacked and we lose our voices.

The human right to culture (Art. 27, Universal Declaration of Human Rights) is strongly tied to all other human rights. It is culture that lets us lift our voices, tell our stories, sing our truth.

When war has raged and culture is lost, the bringing back of culture is a radical act of peacebuilding.

Please help us bring back culture for those who are bravely turning from war to life.

Music is our universal language.
