The goal of Tanzania Youth Music is to build local capacity and strengthen Tanzanian cultural connections. 30 youth and community leaders will be trained to incorporate community music methods within organizations working in partnership with FEMI.
Based on the successful Rwanda Youth Music program, Musicians without Borders will conduct music workshop leadership trainings for 30 community members in Moshi, the Lower Moshi region, and Arusha, engaging them to work with vulnerable children or youth on a regular basis.
Following the training, all participants will be better equipped to engage their communities, strengthen social bonds between vulnerable children, and between children and their families through music. The trainees will acquire skills in running music workshops and will become leaders and role models, promoting community involvement and increasing social awareness concerning HIV-infected/affected individuals and other marginalized groups.
