(Playing For Change) We are thrilled to release this song around the world, “With my own two hands,” by Ben Harper, part of a partnership with the international anti-poverty NGO, ATD fourth world, and their #StopPoverty campaign.
Wherever men and women are condemned to live in poverty, human rights are violated – but together, with our own two hands, we can build a world without poverty.

Inspire and connect the world through music
About Playing For Change:
Playing For Change (PFC) is a movement created to inspire and connect the world through music, born from the shared belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people. The primary focus of PFC is to record and film musicians performing in their natural environments and combine their talents and cultural power in innovative videos called Songs Around The World. Creating these videos motivated PFC to form the Playing For Change band—a tangible, traveling representation of its mission, featuring musicians met along their journey; and establish the Playing For Change Foundation—a separate 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to building music and art schools for children around the world. Through these efforts, Playing For Change aims to create hope and inspiration for the future of our planet.
