Together we can Build a Better World!
~Inspired by the Charmed Life of Russell & Gina Garcia~
We believe that youth can move the world! The aim of the Build a Better World Foundation is to support youth in this noble endeavor through music and the arts by sponsoring charity concerts and events. Donations to the Build a Better World Foundation go directly to the production of musical events, which not only nurture talent and leadership skills in the participating youth, but raise funds and awareness for existing charitable organizations and projects in education, natural health, social justice, sustainability, science and the arts.
This Musical Drama is based on the true story of Táhirih, who gave her life so that women might be free from the yoke of oppression. Táhirih’s father recognized her bright and intuitive wisdom, and did the unthinkable, he, himself educated his daughter. In 19th century Persia, women were regarded as having no souls, were forced to wear the veil, and not allowed to speak in the presence of men. Táhirih, fearlessly denounced the veil, polygamy, and the evil practices of the clergy. “You can kill me as soon as you like, but you cannot stop the emancipation of women”.
It is Russ & Gina’s hope that this musical will be performed from the stage so that the life of Tahirih can continue to inspire future generations. PURCHASE THE CD HERE
