Ethiopia has this year recorded over 100,000 cases of COVID-19. In a country where poverty and homelessness exist in great number, this was devastating for so many.
For the past 5 years Instruments For Ethiopia has worked to support underprivileged children to learn music in Addis Ababa through the Lelt Foundation. Because of COVID-19 their work has been heavily restricted, with children unable to access regular classes and community programs.
Finally things are starting to open up and music lessons can once again resume. With your help we can continue to support young musicians as Ethiopia returns to normal.
Weekly music classes are offered at Lelt Foundations Community Center, teaching children the traditional instruments of Ethiopia. Students connect to their own history through instruments that their ancestors played, like the krar, masinko, and washint. In addition, they learn piano and guitar, and music theory.
We value your support so much and thank you for being part of the MusicGiveLife family!
