Brooke Wilder, lead singer of The 617 and founder of the Ubuntu Music Therapy Initiative, travels annually with a team of like-minded individuals to underserved communities throughout East Africa to create a sustainable music therapy program for those who would not otherwise have access to services. Ubuntu aims to not only provide direct music therapy services to these communities, but to create feasible, lasting programs. We believe education and advocacy is the best road to long
term success. We are currently developing a training toolkit to be offered to community musicians and caregivers, as well as working to create a Kenyan Music Therapy Association
with the Permanent Presidential Music Commision to have designated standards of practice.
