Providing Access to Music for Kids in Kenya
'Music... is the language which penetrates most deeply into the human spirit, reaching people through every barrier, disability, language and circumstance. This is why it has been my dream to bring music back into the lives of those people whose lives are especially prone to stress and suffering... so that it might comfort, heal and bring delight.' Yehudi Menuhin
Using music, the universal language, to communicate, build confidence, unlock creativity and enhance lives
MFK'S VISION IS THAT ALL KIDS IN KENYA CAN ACCESS THE JOYS AND BENEFITS OF MUSIC AND HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO CHANNEL THEIR CREATIVE ENERGIES AND TALENTS THROUGH LEARNING MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS TO THE HIGHEST STANDARD.

Keep up to date with our plans and crazy fundraising schemes as we battle to take music to disadvantaged kids in Kenya
Dear Supporters, I am thrilled to announce details of the next phase of
our work in Kenya. It is so important to us that we aim to establish a
sustainable project that can carry on in Kenya permanently. We are
therefore aiming to bring some amazing Kenyan musicians over to England
at somepoint within the next two years in order to have a wonderful
period of cultural exchange, collaborative performance and the chance to
offer our Kenyan colleagues some training in music education so the can
work with us in our mission to provide access to music for
disadvantaged kids in rural Kenya! We are so excited for the future of
MFK. Please keep stay tuned to read more about our aims and how you can
help us achieve them.
Check out this video by the very talented Enock Kirop from Iten, Kenya, of the MFK team in action in January. Expect great things from this guy!
