The Marley family support their first UK charity projects through 1Love.org initiativeTweet
1Love.org, the global movement with a simple mission — do good in honour of Bob Marley’s vision of hope and unity — has announced its first UK charity projects that will support Urban Development and Wings South West.
Supporting grassroots projects, the 1Love.org donations to the UK projects will be made possible by contributions from product sales of two Marley Family ventures: MARLEY audio products from The House of Marley and Marley Beverages.
Urban Development is a not-for-profit music development organisation based in Stratford, East London. It reaches out to young people in the most challenging socio-economic circumstances using music as a tool of engagement, particularly to improve access in areas of deprivation and low participation.
Wings South West supports young people in Bideford and the surrounding area of Northern Devon – one of the most deprived rural regions in the UK, with double the national average of youth unemployment. The Wings projects aims to engage with those not in employment, education or training and work with them for a brighter future.
