  • Description

    Description

    Our Foundation in Africa started in 2016 and we are involved in gathering key players of the music industry and other industries to support young people find their hidden talents and create platform, leaving a positive impact in disadvantaged communities and helping to raise awareness about local issues through music.

    We started as a result of the appalling hard situations in the community among-st disadvantaged young people, that had led to a rise in crime rates, street children, early pregnancies and early marriages leave alone dropping out of school by many children and youth. Lack of employment, death or separation of parents, lack of school fees and other scholastic materials, drug and forms of child abuse have been responsible. Founders of the organization discovered that providing the affected and vulnerable children and youth with a means of survival and keeping them busy can help in reducing the impact of this situation in the community.

    Our interest is to inspire the younger generations through music, and connect disadvantaged areas and its talent with the world, raise awareness through music and artists gather people from different communities bridging gaps through music and giving vulnerable children the chance to learn skills that would offer them a route out of poverty, lifting them off the streets and away from the risks of drug culture, violence and crime. Who Can Volunteer? Our volunteer program is open to anyone with a sense of compassion, a desire to spend time around children, and a modicum of humor.
