WHAT WE HAVE DONE SO FAR

Currently, Playing for Change has created 8 programs, 153 jobs and have a total of 600 participating students. These programs are in several locations including Nepal, Ghana, South Africa, Mali and Rwanda. The programs provide schooling to kids as well as a chance to learn music and to help spread peace through music. The goals for 2013 include 12 established programs, 750 students and 163 total jobs created.


Also, we have collected musicians, mostly street musicians, from around the world and brought them together to create a fully developed album. The unity of nationalities creates a feeling inside of you that adds to the magic of the music. Together, the musicians tour and perform around the world. They share the message of peace and unity and the power of music.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED

Create Your Own Campaign


Building awareness and raising money for the Playing For Change Foundation can come in many forms. Use your talents, or brainstorm with your friends for a fundraising idea in partnership with us. The collective vision of our musicians inspired us; how can our cause to support them inspire you to plan and execute a successful campaign?


Host a Concert or Event


Plan a nonprofit music benefit concert or event. There are many people who are willing to provide their services in support of a cause. Host a musical concert in your school. Would you like to screen a film about Playing For Change with your community to raise money for our Foundation? One of the best ways to raise money for schools of music is through musical events.
