‘Music For Moshi’ is a biennial charity music festival held in the Adelaide Hills. All proceeds support CAPDA’s work with children with disabilities in Tanzania. This year we hope to raise over $20,000. Please help up reach this goal and show your support by getting involved in this incredible event.
The entertainment will kick off at 3pm and consists of a range of solo artists and bands. The final line-up up will be revealed in a matter of days!
Children with disabilities grow into adults with disabilities. And without some basic life skills and earning capacity they are often drawn deeper and deeper into a circle of poverty and disadvantage.
Over the past six years CAPDA has been focusing on meeting the basic therapeutic and medical needs of children with disabilities in Tanzania, and on setting up pilot vocational education programmes.
Now we would like to take this to the next level.
As well as supporting CAPDA’s therapeutic and community outreach work, the funds raised from Music for Moshi 2017 will go towards supporting our long-term partner, Gabriella Children’s Rehabilitation Centre, to establish a community business and training programme teaching young adults with intellectual disabilities to manufacture pavers and bricks.
With appropriate training and oversight, the aim is to equip these young people with the skills and equipment to work in local businesses, or even to set up their own business. Gabriella Centre will provide ongoing support, and continue to monitor the sustainability, quality control, and community acceptance.
Music for Moshi 2017 will build on our past successful programs at Gabriella Centre. The last concert funded their vocational education programmes in market gardening and animal husbandry, which are still going strong!
