Voices united in support of the right to education

The “Une Chanson pour l’Education” project, implemented with the support of Compagnie Zappar, invites children to make a musical commitment to their right to education. Under the guidance of experienced and professional artists, the children take part in the production of songs, CDs and video clips in favour of access to education for all children, across all borders.

A song beyond borders

Launched in 2011 at the initiative of the Swiss Network for Education and International Cooperation, of which Enfants du Monde is a member, “Une Chanson pour l’Education” quickly crossed borders. Students and artists from Burkina Faso, Haiti and Quebec joined Switzerland in defending the right to education for all children around the world by producing a CD and performing their songs on stage.

In all, nearly 3,800 schoolchildren in 5 different countries took part in Une Chanson pour l’Education. Confirmed artists such as Swiss singers Marc Aymon, Fraissinet and K, as well as the Gangbé Brass Band from Benin and Burkinabe singer Dicko Fils also lent their voices to the project.
