OUR HISTORY

Music Relief Foundation was founded in 2011 by Magdalene Adenaike. The charity was inspired by Magdalene's first-hand experiences of the hardships, isolation, and challenges faced by becoming a teenage parent. During this period, she discovered the transformative power of music and the importance of bringing other teenage mothers together to share their experiences. With these two revelations, the idea for Music Relief Foundation was born. It became a place where young mothers could find refuge, receive counselling, and make friends. Furthermore, MRF provided a platform to channel their creativity and help build their confidence. The scope of the charity widened, and in doing this has led us to reach more young people. Responding to the shifting challenges faced by young people today, the charity addresses issues such as knife crime, mental health, safeguarding, sexual exploitation, and trafficking.
