Al Kamandjâti Association (www.alkamandjati.org) is a non-profit organization established in 2002 in France and 2004 in Palestine. It was founded by Ramzi Abu Redwan from Al Amari refugee camp, near Ramallah. Its vision is to introduce and promote broad-based musical education and appreciation as an integral part of Palestinian life.
Its mission is to make music accessible to the entire Palestinian community and to teach music to Palestinian children and strengthen their appreciation of Palestinian culture and identity and it does this by setting up music schools and musical interactions for Palestinian children, in particular the most vulnerable – those living in refugee camps and marginalized or remote locations. Its aim is to offer children the chance to discover their cultural heritage and to give them access to global opportunities to fulfil their creative potential.
Previous winners of the award have included the Rt Hon Jeremy Corbyn and Saint John of Jerusalem Eye Hospital Group.
