Ryan's Guitars Project

Three faiths, six strings. Guitars not guns.

Ryan's Guitars Project, a project of St. Paul's Foundation, provides quality guitars and music instructors to poor and refugee children throughout the Middle East.  Because music provides all children with positive ways of expressing themselves regardless of circumstance.

We provide quality guitars and music instructors to poor and refugee children in the Middle East.

 

Music heals.  Giving children guitars not guns can heal them and end the cycle of violence.  Musical education can reach places traditional education cannot and inoculate children and teenagers against fundamentalist Islamic preaching which is often the only entertainment for refugees.

 

 
Three faiths, six strings. We’re going to make the world sing!”
