In 1999 a group of children, devastated by the war between Kosovo and Serbia, found their hope in music. Learning, playing, singing and performing together to create something positive in their lives. Ten years later they are taking their gift of music to children who are victims of war in Uganda, spreading hope to a new generation and helping them build their tomorrow. One generation, one country, helping the next.
The Shropshire Music Foundation provides free musical instruments and instruction to former child soldiers and refugees in some of the world’s most wartorn places: Kosovo, Uganda, and Northern Ireland. Since 1999, they have taught more than 10,000 young people that through music they can bring healing, hope, and peace to their communities.
