Our programs have been implemented across a diverse range of contexts and cultural environments
AFRICA & MIDDLE EAST:
THE WAY WE WORK
Playing For Change Foundation develops music education programs in areas that are often rich in cultural traditions but limited in economic resources. Programs are free to children and provide instruction in vocals, dance, a wide range of instruments, and music theory. For many, it is the first and only opportunity to attend music and art activities.
We use music as a tool to create positive sustainable change. However, the scope of our projects extends way beyond music, driving social impact through ongoing community led initiatives and benefiting over 15,000 people every year.
More than 3,500 youth attend regular free classes in dance, instrument instruction, languages and musical theory, all taught by qualified, local teachers. The foundation also works with partners to help meet basic needs in our communities, which are home to some of the world’s most economically vulnerable children. This work includes providing primary education, humanitarian aid such as clean water, solar power, food, medicine, clothes, books and school supplies, and tools and training to support micro-enterprise.
