Communities like Canoa Quebrada, rather than benefiting from the growth of development in the area, are often suffering as local labor is exploited and youths are encouraged into prostitution and drugs. In this region of Brazil, famous for its musical heritage, one ex-resident has returned to her roots and joined forces with locals to help set up a music program for 30 disadvantaged youths. Music, education and recreation are combined to bring joy into their lives and hope for a better future
Music program includes chorus, ensemble, music lessons. Also provided: education classes; eco-citizenship classes; library; recreational activities: sports, games, educational videos
Whilst bringing an ongoing sense of fulfillment into children’s lives, the program also seeks to improve education levels and opportunities for income generation and advancement, whilst restoring local cultural traditions to this hard-hit community
