Since this year, SOS Children's Village has expanded its range of educational and therapeutic support measures for children and adolescents to include music. Music complements already existing offers, such as animal-assisted education, art therapy , as well as individual support measures. The aim of these services, which are financed almost exclusively through donations, is to offer children and young people a "safe and non-judgemental place" where they can face their worries and fears and thus contribute to the healing of traumatic injuries.
Musek@Kannerduerf comprises two areas: on the one hand, the organisation of our workshop series, a leisure activity that we organised for the first time in 2021 and whose aim is to sensitise the children and young people looked after by SOS Kannerduerf to the diversity of music; and on the other hand, the music therapy accompaniment of children and young people from SOS Kannerduerf.
The workshop series is funded by the Fondation Loutsch-Weydert and music therapy can be offered thanks to the support of the Oeuvre Nationale de Secours Grande-Duchesse Charlotte.
