Music for One Foundation
World Education Forum(WEF) 2015, Kilibara Jazz Group from Tanzania Branch of the Music for One played to celebrate WEF 2015 in the Opening ceremony of the NGO Forum

From 19th to 22th of May, the World Education Forum (WEF) 2015 was held in Incheon Metropolitan city, Republic of Korea. The World Education Forum 2015 was expected to provide a unique platform for global leaders in education, ministers, policy-makers and representatives of civil society, teachers, experts and the private sector to take stock of achievements and shortfalls in the implementation of the Education For All goals and education-related MDGs, and to agree on a joint position for the education goal and targets in the post-2015 development agenda, which will be adopted by UN Member States at a Summit in September 2015. It was also an opportunity for the international education community to chart the way for the implementation of the post-2015 education agenda through a Framework for Action. The key message of the WEF 2015 is “Equitable and inclusive quality education and lifelong learning for all by 2030. Transforming lives through education.”
Before the WEF 2015, the NGO forum was held from 18th to 19th of May. Among 300 seats in the NGO Forum, Korean NGOs were assigned to only 40 seats and the Music for One Foundation took 2 seats! Also, Kilibara Jazz Group from Tanzania Branch of the Music for One played to celebrate WEF 2015 in the Opening ceremony of the NGO Forum. Kilibara Jazz Group is a professional jazz group with famous contrabassist Dong-Hwa Park, and currently, they are teaching music and performing in Kilimajaro region in Tanzania, East Africa. The celebrating performance received great ovation from all NGOs participants. The Music for One deeply appreciates everyone who enjoyed the performance, especially thanks to special the saxophonist Hyun-Wook Nam, and the drummer Seong-Heon Hong.

*Kilibara is a combination of ‘Kili’ which means the highest Mt. Kilimanjaro with an altitude of 5,895m in Africa and ‘bara’ representing ‘see’ in Korean and ‘land’ in Tanzanian language. Therefore, it implies its goal to see far wider and much higher place on Mt. Kilimanjaro and to go forward together through music.
