One World Beat Help Projects


Give A Child A Chance
The One World Beat 2005 festival will focus on giving underprivileged children a future through education. Together with our two partner organizations Outside the Dream and Liberation Through Education we will help street kids and other vulnerable youngsters in Asia, Africa and Haiti. more...


Beat the Wave
In collaboration with Save the Children we are inviting musicians to donate one of their concerts to help the orphans of the tsunami - Beat the Wave.

The One World Beat vision
The idea behind One World Beat is to unite musicians around the world for a good cause and thousands have supported the project. One World Beat 2003 generated benefits for nonprofits like United Planet, an Internet-based charity devoted to peace-building around the world through community and technology- based programs and intercultural education. Other local charities were able to raise funds for people hurt in bushfires in Australia, children in need in Lithuania, victims of violence in Alaska, youth education programs in the USA and Japan, for villagers in El Salvador to maintain their heritage, landslide survivors in Bolivia, and youth affected by HIV/AIDS in Nigeria.

In 2004 we focused on HIV/AIDS, and chose one official charity--Keep A Child Alive--a US-based pioneering treatment endeavor now operating in Africa, which helps children and their families infected and affected by the disease. Some funds raised also stayed at the local level, with a number of musicians and nonprofits donating their time and talents to help grassroots HIV/AIDS organizations and enhance education and prevention programs.

In 2005 we hope you will help us to raise funds and awareness for our designated help projects, as well as giving locally so that all might be safe, healthy, and have sufficient means to live and thrive. Music Making A Difference: it never sounded so good!
