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

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.

In March we were invited by Unicef El Salvador and the Ministerio de Educacion E.S. 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”
