Summary

This project will help sustain 12 Amani music clubs in rural Colombia, which are facilitated and taught by local artists who teach 250 children and youth about social and emotional intelligence through a do-it-yourself music-making curriculum. Music strikes a chord in every young person's emotional development, even in challenging circumstances, when young people have the emotional resources they need to thrive they can be their own best agents for equity, social empathy, and structural change.

Challenge

According to a recent UNESCO report, COVID-19 outbreak is a major educational crisis that widens learning inequalities and hurts vulnerable children & youth disproportionately. Increased isolation, changes in routine, & lack of resources (such as food and emotional support) will have a lasting impact on young people. Currently, 250 children from rural areas of Cali and the coffee-growing region of Quindio in Colombia, need socioemotional support & education to overcome this kind of challenge.

Solution

Fundacion Escuela Nueva Volvamos a la Gente in partnership with Amani Project facilitate the creation of youth-led music clubs where a local teaching artist provides guidance and close follow-up and motivation through the implementation of a DIY music-making and social-emotional learning curriculum and by providing materials to make instruments at home

Long-Term Impact

The project will give 250 children and youth unique tools to make their voices heard, to understand and express their feelings through music and to plan and execute community projects. Connections will be forged between young people and their full potential, their peers, and ultimately their communities. They will acquire emotional resources they need to thrive so they can be their own best agents for equity, social empathy, and structural change.
