Bright Light Projects focuses on a simplistic musical approach in addressing and advocating for social issues and sustainable community development. It is our core belief Music is a catalyst for Sustainable Development in Africa. Music is live, music is love, music is vital in every struggle. When we sing, we don’t just express our sentiments, but use our musical influence as goodwill ambassadors to fight for change in this fast world of violence, crime, hatred, tribal and religious wars. Music can and will bring a great contribution in fighting injustice, religious intolerance, women’s rights, the right to education, the right to freedoms, the rights of a child. Music can provide a moral foundation for understanding and peace the world over. Music can bridge gaps between socio- economic classes, age-groups, and reaches a variety of populations that are under-served. Our brand is simple: “Advocacy through Music”
Music has an enormous social and cultural impact throughout the world. Music is a powerful global resource that provides meaningful solutions to our social and economic challenges. Music provides cost effective solutions to many of the critical social and economic problems facing developed and developing countries today such as sustainable community development, mental and physical health, healing trauma survivors, enhancing learning, and promoting peace building.
