Earlier this year, we invited Canadians to join us in making an impact through music in the lives of youth living in poverty.

Today, we want to show you just how big that impact was.

Dozens of youth in Tanzania had the opportunity to participate in a six-day workshop and two-day music festival, building skills and confidence that they will carry with them into their bright futures!

Watch the video below to take a peek into the music festival and hear from some of the participants:

“Thank you to those who supported this event. [Through it] we have been able to show the gifts that God has put in us.”

– Crispin, age 20

We are so thankful for the impact of this music festival. These teens are building confidence, discovering talents and leaning into the fullness of who God created them to be!

Thank you for your partnership and support of this initiative. Your impact truly does have us singing for joy!
