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.
