Our second ‘story of light’ comes from Miguel Ortega, Program Manager of Soy Música, as he shares how the program aims to bring social change and break the cycle of violence in El Salvador.
A small piece of the story of Musicians without Borders’ work can be told through numbers; the number of people participating in programs, the number of activities that have taken place, the number of organizations around the world with which we work. Of course, each of these numbers represents a story in itself, of the music made by people in a moment of their lives.
We’re back in El Salvador for the third training week in our program Soy Música. We are training 35 Salvadoran music teachers and community facilitators to become community music leaders, and use music as a tool to promote inclusion and social harmony among thousands of children in El Salvador.
This week, we began the second phase of our Soy Música training in El Salvador with good energy and music making. We expect a full and intense week ahead of new experiences in community music leadership!
This program is in partnership with Unicef El Salvador and the Ministerio de Educación E.S. http://mwb.to/soymusica #MusicConnects
