Soy Música
Background

El Salvador is a country that suffered a brutal civil war from 1980 to 1992. Today in El Salvador, many years after ‘peace’ was declared, inequality, fear and violence still prevail.

We have partnered with UNICEF and the Ministry of Education of El Salvador, as part of a national program to build capacities for teachers in peacebuilding.

Community Music Leadership Training

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.

The training is based on our Community Music Leadership training that has been developed and delivered in Central-East Africa, the Middle East and Europe. Following an assessment visit in March, our team has further developed and adapted the program to the local needs in El Salvador.

For more information about the program, please contact m.ortega@musicianswithoutborders.org
