Project Details

Make Music Matter, in partnership with the Panzi Hospital and Foundation will be testing the expansion of their innovative ‘Healing in Harmony’ music therapy program, which historically focused on helping women and girls survivors of sexual violence recover from their traumas and reintegrate back into the community. This project will now test the inclusion of men and boys within the existing program in order to provide the opportunity to address the trauma from violence and conflict that is pervasive in their lives, and develop nonviolent coping skills, discuss positive models of masculinity, understand gender equality, and learn tools to support and empower their family and community members.
