The Sounds of Change foundation builds the capacity and strengthens skills of aid workers and teachers to integrate music as an empowering tool in their work with children in (post) conflict areas.

Creativity is as important as literacy

"Both creativity and critical thinking have been listed as essential 21st century skillls. The world is tremendously changing and the only way to solve the big challenges that lie ahead is by using our creative minds" (Sir Ken Robinson)

 Especially for people living in challenged areas, using and developing their creative mind is a a necessity. It brings hope, opportunities, connection and empowerment. We use music to build these capacities.

 

All change and development start with education

We believe that children 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 children 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 children can learn and freely express themselves, they can explore possibilities and embark on opportunities for a positive and prosperous future.

 

Mission

Our mission is to bring music, and the life skills that music can teach, to children in and from (post) conflict areas. To make sure that our projects are sustainable and impactful, we train educators. Through a "training of trainers" model and masterclasses, we build and improve the skills of educators and learn from promising practices to scale both the reach and impact of music on children.
