The Brigitte & Bobby Sherman Children’s Foundation (BBSCF) is a humanitarian organization dedicated to caring for children adversely affected by poverty and disease in developing countries. Our mission is to help these children by providing them with food, clothing, healthcare and education. But what makes us different is our belief in the power of music to inspire and heal. Thus a key component of our care is access to music and the arts.
We are in the process of completing our first project, the construction of a youth center in the town of Ada in Ghana. We call our youth center a Musical Village. It will have after school activities and recreation that a youth center typically provides, but will also integrate the teaching, practice and performance of music. Our initial phase of construction will be finished in June and programs at the Musical Village will begin in July.
