Where We Work
Make Music Matter works closely with local partners to integrate and adapt our Music Enrichment Program to the diverse needs of the participants.
Currently, Make Music Matter is operating programs in two locations:
Uyisenga – Rwamagana Rwanda
Partner organization: Uyisenga N’Manzi
Panzi Hospital – Bukavu DRC
Partner organization: The Panzi Foundation
Our music therapy program at Uyisenga Ni Imanzi ‘Lifting Hearts and Minds, Empowering Children of Child-Headed Household in Rural Rwanda’ is made possible thanks to the support of the Manitoba Council for International Cooperation (MCIC).
Our innovative music therapy program, Healing in Harmony, implemented in partnership with Panzi Foundation USA and the Panzi Foundation DRC staff at Maison Dorcas, and with support from the Humanitarian Innovation Fund, is helping survivors, vulnerable women, children and Panzi staff use the healing power of music to recover from traumatic past experiences.
