  • Tubakunde exchange programme happening now!

    In July this year Music as Therapy International teamed up with the Tubakunde Network (a Rwandan network supporting centres for children and adults with disabilities) to host a conference which was attended by staff from 23 centres across Rwanda. This was also the launch of an exchange programme which would allow our experienced Local Partners from Cyangugu, who have been using music as therapy for more than 5 years, to share their skills with staff from other centres similar to theirs. 

    The first of these exchange visits is currently taking place. 6 staff have travelled from various parts of Rwanda to learn how they can use music as therapy with those that they are working with. They will then be given a small kit of instruments to take back with them in order to put what they have learnt into practice. 

    We have just received news from the centers in Cyangugu, Ngwino Nawe and Nkanka Nkanka, that the first day of the exchange visit went well. They said “the teachers were so pleased to see how the work is practiced with children. Consuelo did a great job, organising group and individual work and there was a lot of time to discuss techniques and various benefits to the children”.

  • Feedback from our Project in Gisenyi, Rwanda

    We have just received some feedback from a Local Partner in Gisenyi.

    "One surprising positive thing I witnessed is that Josué, who almost every time is not attached to the group, unstable, with complete lack of response to instructions, with lack of ability to experience pleasure, anxious, no speech,...came and sat together with others and stayed focused around half an hour, focused and participating. It was my first time to see that happening. Also, I saw Olivier smiling while beating a drum. It is rare to see him changing his facial expression".
