We’re back in El Salvador for the fourth 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.
The program is in partnership with Unicef El Salvador and the Ministerio de Educación E.S.

At the weekend, a new training course in MwB Community Music Leadership began in Rwanda’s Eastern Province, led entirely by a team of Rwandan musicians and community leaders trained by Musicians without Borders.
The trainees are 20 community members (aged 13-50) who are engaged with supporting young people facing limited opportunities due to poverty, illiteracy, rural unemployment, gender based violence, and formerly living as street children.
This training shares the skills and experience developed since 2010 at our partner WE-ACTx for Hope, and is organised with the organisation Ready for Reading.
It doesn’t happen every day that the school we work in is exactly located next to the entrance of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. So we were happy to arrive too early and walk around the beautiful gardens with a unique irrigation system from the Roman Period.
Today we gave two more workshops in a different school in Tqu’a, a village east of Bethlehem, Palestine. Enjoy the pictures of the children from the 1st-6th grade of the al-Arsa school. Thank you for your hospitality!
