One of the biggest problems of poverty in Africa is its inescapability.
Children who grow up in Kenyan slums do not receive opportunities to develop skills and build a better life and many resort to drugs and crime. Classical music can provide a better opportunity for them, as proven by El Sistema in slums in Latin America.
“Teach the children the beauty of music and the music will teach them the beauty of life.”
~ El Sistema founder, Professor Abreu
El Sistema Kenya’s mission is to significantly change the lives of low-income children and youth in East Africa through classical music.
We believe together we can change the future for thousands of under privileged children in East Africa and hope you will join us!
