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 basic needs, education, enrichment and recreation. 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 have completed 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 house after school activities and recreation that a youth center typically provides, but it will also integrate the teaching, practice and performance of music. In July of 2013, the Musical Village opened and the teachers and support staff moved into the staff quarters.
