Unfortunately since March, all schools, many businesses and NGO's have been locked down, closed or directed to stay home because of Covid 19. Students did no schoolwork during the pandemic. Lockdowns meant major downturns in profits for those already struggling in poverty.
Sadly, this affected our work too...
All training provided through Instruments For Ethiopia had to be temporarily stopped. Thanks to our partner in Addis Ababa, The Lelt Foundation our community of young musicians were still cared for. Lelt has been distributing emergency food aid to parents and families in need during lockdown since March.
Well things are going to look different in 2020 for Instruments For The Outback but we are going ahead! Due to COVID-19 we are unable to physically get to our projects in the NT this year, but it doesn't stop us from being able to provide music education online!
We will be supporting our projects in the Northern Territory this year in the following ways:
- Providing online music lessons featuring pre-recorded content from our pool of professional musicians
- Online workshops, video editing tutorials, sound editing/ mixing tutorials
- Recorded devotions to support staff and students
- Plus sending lightweight recording equipment / software to help build their studio resources
- Providing guitar strings, drum sticks, leads and other items that need replacing
We value your support so much and thank you for being part of the MusicGiveLife family!
