“Your Voice for Children” – The benefit festival that started it all
In 2013 Fetsum and Teddy came up with the idea of a benefit concert that would raise funds in aid of child refugees. In 2016 they made that dream a reality. The festival was a runaway success—selling out Berlin’s 20,000-capacity Waldbühne stadium on June 5, 2016. Stars such as Seeed, Max Herre, Joy Denalane, Cro, Aloe Blacc, MoTrip, and Beatsteaks waived their fees and took the stage to raise their voice for children.
The net proceeds and donations from the concert flowed into international aid projects in crisis zones abroad being carried out by UNICEF and ARCHEMED as well as in refugee projects in Germany. The passionate reception of the festival made Fetsum and Teddy see the need for a common vision of peace right here in Berlin, inspiring them to expand the PxP Embassy’s vision of peace-building with projects that empower children both at home and abroad.
