Founded in 1975, “El Sistema” provides over 300,000 disadvantaged and at-risk youth in Venezuela with a music education and the opportunity to participate in the over 100 youth orchestras around the country. Peace Boat US will join a project to meet the massive demand for more opportunities to practice music by Venezuela’s youth, by working with our sister organization Peace Boat to gather and donate musical instruments. Peace Boat began supporting El Sistema in 2007 after it’s first encounter with the organization, and since then has donated over 250 instruments.
Peace Boat US is looking for partners who would like to support El Sistema by donating musical instruments and accessories – strings, brass, percussion, etc – through our project. Instruments may be delivered directly, or via the Peace Boat.
