Music Workshop Campaign
The Peruvian Outreach Project is initiating a campaign to establish a music workshop at the Aldea Infantil Virgen del Pilar orphanage in Tarapoto, Peru. This involves the purchase of instruments and the hiring of a music teacher for at least eight months. Approximately 32 children will receive instruction in traditional folk music three sessions per week.
Also we will be collecting small hand held instruments for use with the smaller children which will be taken down to the orphanage by POP in December 2023.
