The founders, Anna and Alyson, are thrilled to announce that Play for Progress is the winner of the Deutsche Bank Award for Creative Enterprise 2014.
The jury was convinced to give seed funding and endorsement to Play for Progress "because it brings to life corporate social responsibility in a credible and sustainable way, in a project where music can make a very profound impact on individual biographies."
In addition to receiving financial support from the Deutsche Bank, Play for Progress founders will also receive professional business training and development guidance from a Deutsche Bank mentor.

This Wednesday, May 14th, retired medic Carolyn Steley will host a pizza night fundraiser in her local area of Sydney to help support Play for Progress' pilot program.
We are incredibly grateful to the personal efforts so many have taken to support PFP. We cannot wait to get to work on-site and aid so many children on the road to healing. Thank you, Carolyn, for helping to make that possible!
