Then, in January 2014, Seppo and Christie traveled to Geita with a bag load of instruments. They went to teach music at Rich Hill English Medium and Nursery School. The project brought together local teachers, church leadership, orphanage staff and community members. The project was inspiring, with over 30 students and 10 community members participating in this joyful musical education.
This was the beginning of a now flourishing music program at Rich Hill English Medium and Nursery School.
The CAP Network engaged Bridging Worlds Through Music in 2016 as part of our overall efforts to Advance Education for children and youth in African communities. Since then we have been working to expand the music education programming in Geita through building an instrument and music book library, facilitating teacher training and deepening relationships and commitment to music as an approach to building life skills and supporting academic performance within the school communities.
