Musicians without Borders (MwB) is an international nonprofit organization that uses music to connect communities, bridge divides, and heal the wounds of war and conflict. Under the guidance of project manager Danny Felsteiner, MwB has designed and facilitated an extensive teacher training for WE-ACTx’s Peer Parents—with the aim of giving them the tools to incorporate a rich variety of music-making into our year-round youth support groups. The Peer Parents graduated from the program in February 2013— after two years of weekly music lessons (provided by local Rwandan artists at the Kigali Music School) and a series of intensive workshops led by visiting artists from all over the world. Our collaboration with MwB has been an inspiration to the entire WE-ACTx community, and we look forward to supporting the Peer Parents in this imaginative approach to serving the holistic needs of our young patients.
