RECENT STORY
Fostering an Education with Music

 
 

The Instituto de Investigación, Educación y Promoción Popular del Ecuador (INEPE) in Southern Quito, Ecuador has served underprivileged children through their children's center, basic general education, and high school programs since 1985. Their main purpose is to foster a nurturing environment for these children, allowing them to develop into human beings capable of positively impacting their communities and society as a whole. They furthered their holistic efforts in 2008 when they established their Programa de Educación del Talento (i.e., the Musical Talent Education Program) to provide their students with an artistic space in hopes that they can discover their own potential in a new light.

We began our partnership with INEPE back in March of 2020 where we assisted them in the implementation of childhood education workshops that aid the mental and emotional growth of 120 parents and children each week by organizing various group activities that value the importance of team bonding. In April of 2021, we then provided 55 of their students with school supplies to alleviate some of the financial tolls families were experiencing as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic. Now as the illness's transmission decreases, INEPE has been able to hold their workshops in person again, including those oriented around teaching through music and we assisted by providing musical instruments.
