250 young musicians, 16 nations: Enabling Leadership’s Kidz4Kidz 2024 concert breaks boundaries for social impact
Enabling Leadership, a global non-profit organization with a mission to inculcate essential leadership and life skills in children who come from under-resourced backgrounds, recently concluded the second edition of the Kidz4Kidz online fundraising concert. The 36-hour long global event took place from April 27 to April 28, and was streamed on Enabling Leadership’s YouTube channel, captivating audiences worldwide.


Kidz4Kidz 2024 brought together 250 talented young musicians from 16 countries, including Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, India, Hong Kong, China, UAE, Oman, Bahrain, Qatar, Netherlands, Kenya, Zimbabwe, UK, US, and Canada, who dazzled the audience with their musical abilities and at the same time, raised funds to support children enrolled in EL's programs. Through their performances and fundraising efforts, participants demonstrated their commitment to making a meaningful difference in the lives of others.


This year's concert goal was to support 2,000 marginalized children worldwide. All participants who fundraised received a Social Service Certificate, gaining a competitive edge for their university applications and joining a global network of change-makers through the Kidz4Kidz Ambassador Program. Those students who met their fundraising goal also received a letter of recommendation. They were also featured in global posts, showcasing their commitment to making a difference.


Mr Ravi Sonnad, Founder & CEO of Enabling Leadership, thanked all the participants, parents, supporters, and volunteers involved in making Kidz4Kidz 2024 a reality, and said, "Music is a powerful medium that builds critical life and leadership skills and at the same time, brings people together. At Enabling Leadership, we believe that every child can be a leader and a force for positive change in their communities. Kidz4Kidz 2024 exemplifies our vision of empowering youth to create a brighter future for all. I am immensely grateful for the dedication and passion demonstrated by everyone who helped make this event a resounding success. Together, we are inspiring a generation of leaders who will transform the world."


Participants in the Kidz4Kidz concert performed two songs each, and helped to raise funds to support 10 children in the EL programs. These students will also be able to connect with the children they are supporting through regular virtual calls, enabling them to develop a unique bond across cultures and backgrounds. The event this year also featured panel discussions with eminent global personalities and guest appearances by international musicians such as Dr Veronica Stewart, Founder & Director, Sydney Voice Studio; Ms. Shobhana Raghavan, Musician; Mr. Jack Thomas, Founder Director of Performer’s Collective School of Music; Mr. Dominic D’ Cruz, Musician; and Dr Sarah Fabian, Director of Athletic Bands among other eminent people. 


The Kidz4Kidz 2024 concert marks another significant milestone in EL's goal to reach and impact 1 million children.
