With your help, we will train 15 more Community Music Leaders, and support our team of 30 experienced Community Music Leaders to work with over 1000 children in 2017; former street children; young people facing profound challenges, and children affected by HIV. Through life-affirming music and connection to their cultural roots, children will feel supported and valued as they so richly deserve.
On this 23rd Day of Remembrance in Rwanda we stand with all Rwandans in memorial and for a peaceful future.
A young band from our partner organisation in Rwanda wrote this song, expressing their feelings of the tragic events of 1994. It begins:
“Although I wasn’t there, I was told about it.
Imagining it is hard for me.
Their tears are flowing and they are full of sadness and my sorrow.”
