SECTIONS: Music for Sustainable Community Development Music for Peacebuilding COUNTRY: South Africa PROJECT: NTONGA MUSIC SCHOOL: PLAYING FOR CHANGE DESCRIPTION: ―Playing for Change, Peace Through Music‖ is a multimedia movement created to inspire, connect, and bring peace to the world through music. The idea for this project arose from a common belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances among people. No matter whether people come from different geographic, political, economic, spiritual or ideological backgrounds, music has the universal power to transcend and unite us as one human race. In 2007, the Playing For Change Foundation (PFCF) was created to support, through music, communities in need throughout the world. PFCF has just opened the Ntonga Music School in Gugulethu, South Africa. Located outside of Cape Town, Gugulethu is a community in need of immediate assistance and inspiration. The school provides the children with valuable music skills development and mentorship designed to instill self-esteem and confidence. Working together with local residents, the Foundation is helping to create a safe, creative learning and sharing environment for children who will gain access to mentors and resources that were previously unavailable. The new school and its social learning programs offer Guguletu‘s youth an alternative to the violence and deprivation they face daily. In addition to building the school, the Foundation will be providing musical instruments, educational materials, and other necessities that this center requires. The school is led by a dedicated staff of music instructors and trained personnel who understand the unique challenges of their students. The school will not only empower the people of Guguletu to create positive opportunities for their community, but will also foster a greater connection to the rest of the world through the sharing of their music CURRENT STATUS: The Playing For Change Foundation (PFCF) is dedicated to connecting the world through music: Building and connecting music schools around the world that provide hope and inspiration to communities in need Providing a safe learning environment as an alternative to the violence and despair that these children face in their daily lives Empowering children to create and share their music providing a healthy outlet for their personal expression Promoting collaboration among students from our schools around the world. Currently PFC sponsors seven projects around the world: Ntonga Music School in in Gugulethu, South Africa; Hari Kul Music School in Patan, Nepal; Bizung School Of Music And Dance in Tamale, Ghana; Ecole De Musique De Kirinin in Kirina Mali; Tintale Village Teaching Center in Tintale Village, Nepal; Matrata Nepal Music Program in Kathmandu, Nepal and Intore Culture & Music Center in Kigali, Rwanda. 13
