Mazaya is a socio-cultural program for young children who have dropped out of school and come from disadvantaged backgrounds. Here they are offered an education that combines schooling and a professional music curriculum. By learning how to be a musician, Mazaya wants to offer these destitute children a chance for social and professional integration, making music a tool in the fight against social decline. The Mazaya program is managed by the “Fondation Tenor pour la Culture”, which defines the educational program. The Regine Sixt Children’s Aid Foundation DRYING LITTLE TEARS supported the program with a generous donation of musical instruments. Since then, more students have been accepted and some have successfully completed the program. Some work as music teachers and one student has established himself as a professional cello player in the Moroccan Philharmonic Orchestra.
