Inaugural Sydney Peace Prize recipient Professor Muhammad Yunus has teamed up with music duo The Green Children to release a music video.
The video for the song, titled Hear Me Now, was inspired by Yunus and shot in Bangladesh in late 2006. The song tells the story of the Grameen Bank and features Yunus.
The Green Children have pledged the proceeds from the sale of their first album and all funds raised through related activities to the construction of an eye hospital in Bangladesh through the Green Children Foundation.
Yunus is partnering the Foundation for microcredit, healthcare and education projects in Bangladesh.
