Music For Hope
The International Performer’s Aid Trust (IPAT) has supported the living expenses
of the music teacher team (mostly ex-project students) over a number of years.
IPAT’s support has been absolutely vital to the growth and continuation of the project
as state support for the arts in El Salvador is extremely limited and practically
non-existent in poor rural communities.
Specifically, IPAT has enabled Music for Hope to develop the musical and teaching skills of young musicians
(with support from local professional musicians) and in so doing, enabled the team to pass on their skills to the next generation.
Recently, Music for Hope has been working with local communities to combat increasing levels of gang-on-gang violence in El Salvador.
They have produced a video telling of the new problems they face in the Bajo Lempa.
