WAR divides - MUSIC connects

"You may be poor, you may only have a ramshackle house, you may have lost your job, but that song gives you hope." - Nelson Mandela
Musicians without Borders uses the power of music to bridge divides, connect communities, and heal the wounds of war. They work closely with local musicians and organizations to build sustainable projects in response to local needs. From successful projects they develop models, methodologies and trainings to adapt for other regions. Musicians without Borders believe that where war has raged, people need everything to return to life from food to water, shelter, clothing, medicine. But more than anything, people need hopeTo reconcile, people need empathy. To heal, people need connection and community. MUSIC CREATES EMPATHY, BUILDS CONNECTION AND GIVES HOPE.
