What Are Other Organisations Doing?

MusicWorks is a non-profit organisation based in Cape Town that has been running for 10 years. They make use of music to help children in underprivileged communities realise their potential.

Their vision is to have young people find hope for their future through their connections with music. Offering therapeutic services to the children and their communities, they create and strengthen their musical resources and support networks through the help of volunteers and donations from various sponsors.

MusicWorks runs numerous programs to help them in their endeavour:

  • MUSIC THERAPY- these are one-on-one group based sessions that give children clinical interventions, helping the hurting one through their healing process.

  • MUSIC FOR LIFE- this makes use of musical activities like the marimba, gumboot dancing and choirs as part of their after-school programs.

  • ECD- the Early Childhood Development program works with children between two and six years who live in impoverished and violence-stricken communities.

There are many ways musicians can get involved by participating in their Play It Forward concerts. This is “A music concert is ‘passed on’ in a chain reaction of goodwill; raising funds and increasing exposure for our work.”
