Summary

In the last decade, 2 million children were killed, 6 million injured and 12 million
left homeless as the result of regional conflicts. In developing countries that are in conflict or post-conflict situations, 30,000 children under the age of five die every day, many from easily preventable causes.

The concert is free, but proceeds from the broadcast rights and related merchandise sales will benefit “We Are the Future” programs, including the creation of child centers in six cities worldwide.

At the centers, children will receive humanitarian services and have access to resources and training in health, nutrition, technology, sports, and the arts.

The first center opened April 8, 2004 in Rwanda. Other centers will open later this year in Ethiopia; Eritrea; Sierra Leone; Afghanistan; and on the West Bank.
