About Playing For Change

 Salvador Persico of Blue King BrownNine music schools and programs have been created in South Africa, Ghana, Mali, Rwanda, Nepal and Thailand. More than 600 kids attend free classes in dance, instruments, languages and musical theory, all taught by qualified local teachers.

Projects also meet basic needs for some of the world’s most economically vulnerable children. This includes primary education, literacy, and the provision of humanitarian aid such as food, medicine, clothes, books and school supplies. Solar light and energy, laptop computers, and other modern technology have also been introduced in areas where previously unavailable.
