We are establishing the first music school in CAR!

Help us to do it!

We want to fulfill the dreams of many children

in the country destroyed by war.

For over 30 years CAR has been torn by war and rebellions. The country is destroyed and its citizens become poor and uneducated. Only education can help Africa. As an answer to this problem we want to build a music school which will broaden the horizons of young Africans.

The school will be lead by a Polish missionary, capuchin and musician Brother Benedict.

The costs of the maintenance and school fee are going to be approximately 533 900 zloty per annum.

Help us to raise the amount by buying a note in our African symphony.

What's going on?

A few words about the project

The annual cost of school activities is approximately 533900 zł. A question may appear in your mind: why is it so expensive? 

See all the detailed fees.

The school will be attended by the most talented and gifted children from Bouar and the surrounding ar-ea. At the end of the education each student receive a certificate and an instrument that will help them to keep on playing (for example giving lessons or playing in the pubs) and also to make a living.

The school will be build in the town called Bouar in the old monastery buildings and its rooms have to be readjusted and reconstructed into the classrooms, to a daily school routine.

The initiator of the project is Brother Benedict, a capuchin monk, priest and musician, who has lived for four years on a mission in CAR.

Help Us 

to make true the dreams of children from the country destroyed by war.
