About The Playing For Change Foundation
The Playing For Change Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating positive social change through music education. We are driven by the belief that peace and change are possible through the universal language of music. By providing children a safe place to learn, flourish and express themselves, PFCF programs provide a creative alternative to the struggles many children face daily.
To date, 15 music programs have been created in 11 countries including South Africa, Ghana, Mali, Rwanda, Morocco, Nepal, Bangladesh, Thailand, Brazil and Argentina. Each offers students the mentorship and guidance they need to grow and thrive through interactions with other students, schools, teachers, and musical cultures. The 4th annual Playing For Change Day is a unique opportunity to advance our mission by fostering even greater connections as we come together to Play for Change.
ABOUT PFC DAY
PLAYING FOR CHANGE DAY is a annual global day of action where musicians of all varieties perform on stages, cafés, city squares, and street corners worldwide and raise money to bring music into the lives of young people.
Playing For Change Day is a creative day of action that uses the universal power of music to create positive social change. Your donation or participation contributes to a positive vibration that connects and inspires us all.
