FOR OUR HUMANITARIAN CAUSES AND GLOBAL PROJECTS

Young girls leave a camp for internally displaced persons (IDP) to gather firewood. For some the work will take more than 7 hours and lead them past government checkpoints and leave them exposed to attacks. All the people express fear and wish there was a more secure way to gather wood, essential for cooking in the camp. Girls as young as 8 have been raped, attacked and killed trying to get wood.

WHO WE ARE

Music for Life International is a New York based social enterprise founded by the conductor George Mathew in 2008. MFLI envisions and presents concerts and related events to create public diplomacy as well as awareness and impact for significant international humanitarian crises. Harnessing the unique storytelling power of music, we amplify and intensify narratives and messaging tailored to focus the outcomes and impact of our collaborative partners.

MFLI has raised over $3.3 million since 2006 through concerts and other events for humanitarian and social sector organizations including Doctors Without Borders, UNICEF, Acumen, Catholic Medical Mission Board and HelpMeSee.

MFLI has hosted more than 700 musicians including principal artists from more than a hundred and fifty of the world's great orchestras, choirs, and chamber ensembles to perform in prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall, the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, the United Nations and the National Center for the Performing Arts in Mumbai.

Our concerts have been acclaimed as being of the highest international standard and have produced extensive media coverage from around the globe. They have reached audiences numbering in the millions to generate awareness and action for some of the great humanitarian crises of our time.
