Since 2008, ANAM has helped more than 100 Liberian children access music and other art-related programs. These programs provide an avenue for enrichment which fosters a greater sense of discipline and achievement among children and teaches them peaceful alternatives to the rage they feel from the effects of the 14 years of civil-war in Liberia. Through music and art instruction, these students learn important music skills and gain an appreciation of the arts, which strengthens their cognitive, emotional, and social development.
ANAM strives to transform disadvantaged children through the arts and provide leadership skills to young men and women who would serve as agents of change in the Liberian communities. ANAM has partnered closely with the United States Embassy Public Affairs Office for four years, coordinating community-based music programs which have fostered social growth, peace and reconciliation, creativity, and nation building among young people in Liberia.
