Soroptimists make major donation to Mitrovica Rock School

MwB Director Laura Hassler receives donation from Soroptimist Club Amersfoort

On April 14, 2018, the Soroptimist Club Amersfoort (link in Dutch) celebrated their 30th anniversary by organizing a major benefit event for Musicians without Borders’ project Mitrovica Rock School.

The Soroptimists are a worldwide service club, whose main goal is to improve the lives of women and girls. The donation was in part inspired by the role the Rock School plays in the lives of our female students, as beautifully described by Rock School student Marina (17).

With the donation, we will be able to provide 160 lessons, band coaching sessions and workshops to our ethnically mixed student body in Mitrovica, who are working every day to rebuild the city’s music scene and improve the quality of life in their city. Musicians without Borders and our Mitrovica Rock School are grateful for the generous support of the Soroptimists.
