Through the universal language of music and by promoting young artists from the Middle East and the Western World, the Peace and Prosperity Trust raises awareness and funds for charitable projects in the Middle East and for its young artists.
The Trust stages concerts to provide artists with the opportunity to showcase their abilities, work with globally renowned musicians, and establish themselves on an international stage. Each of these concerts is affiliated with a charity that works towards peace and prosperity in the Middle East.
The Peace and Prosperity Trust was officially founded by Rajai F. Khouri and registered in 1994. It was established to help raise funds through the universal language of music and the performing arts and by promoting young artists from the Middle East and the West. The Trust raises awareness and funds for charitable projects in the Middle East and for its young artists.
In September 2014, the Trust produced, in collaboration with Barclays a concert at Kensington Palace: ‘Arabian Interlude at Kensington Palace’ in the presence of TRH The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester.
