• Sounds of Change works in places where there is a huge need for social inclusion, empathy, hope, autonomy, a sense of belonging and a life nurturing environment

  • All change and development starts with positive role models
    We believe that people have the right to be empowered and develop their full potential. Music is a proven springboard and a very powerful tool to heal the emotional wounds of war, boost creativity and stimulate compassionate communication. These essential life skills and competencies will enable people to engage and connect with their communities and build trust and confidence to work in groups and collaborate on plans and projects. By providing a safe space where people can learn and freely express themselves, they can explore possibilities and embark on opportunities for a positive and prosperous future.

  • We empower our trainees in order to become positive role models in their communities
    Therefore we engage them in a creative music process in which we bring out their potential and develop their listening, improvising, reflecting and leadership skills
  • Sustainability
    To make sure that our projects are sustainable and impactful, we train teams of local organisations. Through a "train the trainer" model and workshops, we build and improve the skills of community builders and learn from promising practices to scale both the reach and impact of music on communities
