New musical instruments were provided for the Ciudad Sandino music school in Nicaragua.
 
One of our club's District Grants for 2021/22 is for musical instruments for the children of Ciudad Sandino, Nicaragua. The municipality will maintain a music school where children, adolescents, and youth from the city can learn to play music. The city has instructors in place, a physical location, and some basic instruments, but they lack a larger variety of instruments to be able to develop the music training.
 
The grant funded the purchase of the following musical instruments and supplies: 18 guitars (15 clasica and 3 electroacoustic), 1 bass guitar, 19 guitar bags, 1 guitar strap, 2 cables, 12 classical guitar pedistals, 4 keyboards, 4 keyboard adapters, 4 keyboard pedestals, 4 keyboard bags, 1 bongo, 1 pedestal for bongo, and 1 Peruvian percussion box.
 
Janet Napier, International Service Director, reported that while they waited for the funds to be transferred and instruments to be ordered, the children fabricated their own homemade instruments in anticipation of the new ones on their way.
 
 
  
 
  
 
The first delivery of instruments was made in October 2021 with the final delivery in January 2022.
