Make Music Day Durban
21 June 2021
"Our goal is to empower, educate and guide young people towards creative and artistic career opportunities. Many children have creative skills and when they are supported, it can help them to avoid being drawn into unhealthy situations that can have a negative impact in their lives. "
A Platform for Local Talent
We invite young artists to write lyrics and create music about aspects of life that affect them and our world so their voices can be heard. By helping youth recognise and develop their skill set that will prepare them for their future. We believe that youth have powerful messages and solutions to bring about peaceful changes. Over The Walls Together Foundation invites youth from all parts of our world to get involved. We want to work together to create a brighter future for youth from disadvantaged communities.
Our future plans include a virtual concert to raise funds for our gender-based violence, gender equality, youth development and HIV AIDS campaigns. We also are in the process of creating song writing lessons to teach children about gender equality at schools with aUK based company.

If you no longer want your music instrument, please donate to our organization and we will be giving it to someone who truly deserves it. Many young people in poor communities do not have money or access to equipment and one of our goals is to make it possible for your much loved music instruments or studio components to reach them. If you would like to donate your equipment, please reach out to us. Because we are a non profit we may not be able to cover postage we would appreciate it if you could assist us with this.
