    • Project

      Worldwide, it is estimated that 1 in every 7 people face some form of physical or intellectual disability (World Report on Disability,” World Health Organization, 2011). When compounded with conditions of poverty, a physical or intellectual disability can lead to further vulnerability, including challenges to securing a livelihood, and correspondingly to obtaining appropriate food, shelter and healthcare services.

      Dorna Centre runs a home that cares for children and youth with Autism while Brass for Africa uses music to accelerate learning and development of children and youth with disabilities. The project Advocacy through Music ensures that the Dorna Centre try new, innovative ways of empowering young people with mild to severe autism and other disabilities, as well as helping to shed the stigma and the isolation PWDs face in their communities.

      According to the study, “World Report on Disability,” PWDs and their families are more likely to face financial and social disadvantage compared to persons without a disability. Using music as a tool to enable change, Brass for Africa delivers weekly music and life skills education, and advocacy training and capacity building to 150 beneficiaries. The selected beneficiaries participate in “Exchange Days,” an all-day event where participants from different programmes come together to learn, play and perform as a collective unit.
