Music for the world

  • Public


imageEvery civilization in human history has a tradition of music - in every Age of Man and in every culture our humanity has been expressed through music, and this musical tradition has been passed from generation to generation.

The world in the 21st century is a global community.  We have all been brought together by astonishing technological advances, and every corner of our earth has been touched by this epochal transformation.  VOICE OF THE WORLD is focused on bringing all of the disparate cultures and traditions together into one joyous global community celebrating music and song in all its forms and variations. 

Music is a precious gift for children throughout the world.  Sadly, throughout many under-developed and impoverished parts of the world, the study and appreciation of music is being disregarded and neglected.  The daily struggle for simple survival in these regions is all-consuming, and the musical education of children is regarded as an unattainable luxury.  
VOICE OF THE WORLD - and its Charity Foundation, MUSIC FOR THE WORLD —pledges to become a force for change and bring music study and a revival of musical tradition to needy children in all the corners of the world. 

MUSIC FOR THE WORLD believes that music education is a right for all children, everywhere, including in the most disadvantaged and dangerous circumstances, and has a goal of securing children’s right to music education.  In war-torn and impoverished countries music education can be a powerful tool for social transformation and can help build a sense of community and positive feedback to the most helpless and vulnerable in those societies - children. 

Children exposed to a musical study involving rhythmic, tonal, and practical skills display superior cognitive performance in reading skills compared with their non-musically trained peers, according to a study published in the journal Psychology of Music.  The study of music enhances school performance in language and literacy.  Numerous studies have reported positive associations between music education and increased abilities in non-musical (eg, linguistic, reading, mathematical, and spatial) domains in children.  Musical studies are supportive of literacy programmes that integrate skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening - and thus a critical component in a child’s education. 

MUSIC FOR THE WORLD is defined as a strategic process to promote social change through the study and practice of musical education for children.  Development of musical study programmes for children is one of the most empowering ways of improving education and other key social outcomes for children and their families in the most under-developed regions of the world.

As an international charity foundation, MUSIC FOR THE WORLD will present prominent celebrities and high-level music-industry professionals as “Ambassadors of Music” that will take the foundation’s humanitarian message of music education for disadvantaged children and promote and publicize it globally. 

MUSIC FOR THE WORLD will initiate a dialogue with the local educational authorities and the parents of disadvantaged children and provide consultation on music education and encourage the participation of children, their families, and communities by: 

  • Increasing knowledge and awareness of local musical tradition
  • Building musical education facilities
  • Promoting music education and the training of musical skills
  • Improving the performance of children in all educational disciplines through music studies (see reference to Psychology of Music study above)
  • Donating the school fees to disadvantaged communities
  • Provide school uniforms to students
  • Address and change the policy of gender-disparity in education — namely by promoting music education for girls
  • Changing individual behavior and collective educational practices
  • Influencing attitudes, social norms and relationships between the educators and families within the local community
  • Enhancing self-esteem and promoting self-reliance in students

Some of the barriers to girls’ education include poverty; economic issues; unfriendly child learning environments; lack of adequate classroom space, furniture and equipment; inadequate water, health and sanitation facilities; high pupil-teacher ratios; and inadequately trained school teachers.

MUSIC FOR THE WORLD will strive to carry its message of musical studies for underprivileged children with a view to obtaining strong programme results and greater traction for policy change to benefit children, their families, communities and societies. These efforts are in line with the UN General Assembly's call to strengthen communication for development as a vital dimension of developmental and humanitarian assistance.

MUSIC FOR THE WORLD has a goal to be present in 6 continents and in over 40 countries and territories in Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America to help children learn the joys of music study from early childhood through adolescence. 

MUSIC FOR THE WORLD is a Non-Profit Charity Foundation and will be funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments.

Partnerships are critical to achieving positive results for children. It is important to underline that MUSIC FOR THE WORLD wishes to collaborate with a broad range of organizations and entities that share the core humanitarian values of the organization.  MUSIC FOR THE WORLD is committed to helping build a world in which all children are able to enjoy their human right to study, practice, and find fulfillment in their cultural heritage through music and song.  Our Charity foundation values the support of all people and all nations irrespective of their race, religion, ethnicity or political beliefs.

MUSIC FOR THE WORLD declines partnerships with entities which are engaged in activities that are not legal as well as those which do not conform to the spirit of the foundation’s policies. For further information, please contact:  VOICE OF THE WORLD
