Giving Voice to Hope

Giving Voice to Hope: Music of Liberian Refugees is a project that serves specifically refugees from Liberia, but is relatable to refugees all over the world, and the music that they express. The wiki page (link below) shows many aspects of the music, and not only how it’s made, but how it affects the refugees and the people around them. It also provides some background information on how the group came to be, and where the included refugees come from. They-like many other projects- have sold CD’s filled with the refugees’ creations. They partner with the Centre for Youth Empowerment to get the refugees back on their feet in a new place.
