Empowering communities through the power of music.
Bridging Worlds Through Music (BWTM) offers free music education to children and youth in Geita, Tanzania. Our focus is to empower children and youth through musical creation and expression. Our programs help youth build essential skills such as teamwork, cooperation and creative problem solving, to allow them to reach for their dreams. We believe that music can be a conduit for both healing and learning.
At BWTM, we work with local teachers and build their capacity by providing training in music pedagogy. Our work is guided by a commitment to inclusion, gender parity, and providing opportunities for individual growth. We believe that music can change hearts and minds, and help people develop integral skills for success.
