Teaching Children Peace Through Music

The Shropshire Music Foundation provides free musical instruments and instruction to former child soldiers and refugees in some of the world’s most war-torn places: Kosovo, Uganda, and Northern Ireland. Since 1999, we have taught more than 14,000 young people that through music they can bring healing, hope, and peace to their communities.

You can help us promote peace through music. Read our blog. Learn more about our programs and the people we serve. Then, give a little of yourself by donating, organizing a Shropshire Music Foundation club at your school, or using your own musical skills in our Practice for Peace fundraiser.

We made this video about what we do. Watch it now, share it with others, and download it from our resources page to play for your large group.
