ProPal steunt Musicians without Borders
ProPal verkoopt uitsluitend Palestijnse Producten.
Door de aanschaf van een product steunt u de Palestijnse economie die ernstig te lijden heeft onder de gewelddadige Israëlische bezetting.
De winst van de verkoop gaat in zijn geheel naar de prachtige projecten van Musicians without Borders.
Kinderen verwerken daar hun trauma's door muziek te maken en krijgen non-violence training waar ze leren hun gevoelens en frustraties op een geweldloze manier te uiten.

Thank you so much for your support! With your help, we managed to let a total of 3465 Palestinian children participate actively in music workshops in 2016! 85 children from refugee camps, an orphanage, and children with chronic diseases received a series of rap workshops, recorded their songs and performed. Their performances were attended by almost 900 friends and family members. 3130 children participated in our Musical Playground workshops and performances, including 262 children with special needs.
We continued our pilot program with Music as Therapy International, and as part of the practical work 3 series of Music as Therapy Sessions were given to 9 children with special needs. In addition to these sessions, we organized many other music workshops to 156 children with special needs. 75 of these music workshops were given to deaf children by our deaf workshop leader Halimeh.
We took part in the Palestine Choir Festival and hosted three interactive performances given by international and Palestinian musicians for 85 people in Dheisheh refugee camp, Caritas Baby Hospital in Bethlehem and the Nursery Home for Old People in Beit Sahour.
We trained 55 people in Music and Nonviolent Leadership: 30 kindergarten teachers, 15 social workers and music teachers, and 10 musicians and youth leaders who were trained to implement our Musical Playground program.
We continued and expanded our partnership with Sounds of Palestine (www.soundsofpalestine.org). In September 2016, Sounds of Palestine welcomed a new group of 40 first graders, who joined the other 64 children in playing an instrument, singing in the choir, dancing dabke, learning music theory and playing in the orchestra. Another 180 kindergarten children living in refugee camps and in the isolated villages Dar Salah and Al-Khas received weekly music lessons.
We are very thankful for your support, and always happy when you visit us here in Palestine!
All the best,
