The coronavirus has brought Kenya to a standstill. Informal settlements in Nairobi such as Mathare, Dandora and Kawangware are too under-resourced to bear the lateral effects of the pandemic. Basic necessities for children are not being met, especially food and education. Music is a universal language that spreads joy regardless of background. We are all students in Kenya who are passionate about music and want to utilise it to make a difference. We have chosen two trusted and hardworking charities who work at ground level to ensure that these basic needs are being given to the people in an effective way.

 

Since 2007 Dignitas Project has helped to train 1000+ teachers so that children are able to learn more effectively. Now that schools have been shut, teachers don’t have a job and this project is finding ways for them to become Community Champions who stay in contact with students in order to ensure their wellbeing and encourage the continuation of learning.

 

For the past three decades, Ingrid Munro, the founder and Managing Trustee of  The Jamii Bora Trust has played a pivotal role to ensure that the poorest families in the slums get an opportunity to start a business and climb out of poverty. At this challenging time, sources of food are scarce, so we are helping The Jamii Bora trust to send money to most desperate families for them to have access to food.

 

Let us come together and do what we can to help those most in need. Join our #musicbeatscovid challenge to spread the word. 

Any donation is appreciated:

$10 will feed a family for a week

$12 supports well-being and education for a household for 1 month

 

Thank you and keep safe!
