Assessment visit to El Salvador

In March we were invited by UNICEF El Salvador and the Ministry of Education (MINED) to assess the needs and structure for a community music leadership training in El Salvador. The aim is to address the high level of violence in the country and reach thousands of children using music as a tool for community building, reducing violence, and bringing hope.

During the week we visited several community and cultural centers, running workshops with children, and structuring the program to start later this year.

We would like to thank the following centers for welcoming and sharing their music with us:
Centro Cultural Pablo Tesak
Armonia Cuscatleca
Centro Arte para la Paz
Centro de Arte y Cultura, Escuela de Música “Paco Cutumay”

In these photo you can see students of Pablo Mendez Granadino who does amazing work with these children at Armonia Cuscatleca.
