Since 2008, over 600 students in Monrovia, Liberia have received music instruction at ANAM.
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 young adults through music by providing leadership skills through music to enable them to become agents of change in the Liberian communities, and leaders in their local churches and schools. ANAM has partnered closely with the United States Embassy Public Affairs Office for over eight years, coordinating community-based music programs which have fostered social growth, peace and reconciliation, creativity, and nation-building among young people in Liberia.
