Thanks to your generous donations during the Recycled Orchestra Tour, we’re moving ahead with developing the Community Education Centre in Cateura by reconstructing an existing building that came up for sale.
The building is located in a more established area of Cateura, far enough from the river to avoid being flooded during the rainy season but close enough for the children in the neighbourdhood to walk to.
The first phase of the centre will provide a safe space for the Orchestra program to grow and help more children get off the streets and into the music program. It will also provide a space for supervised homework time after school.
As you can see in the pictures below, the community is already testing out the space – but we’ll be starting the reconstruction of the first phase once the necessary permits are in!
