Sanitansamble - Community

Sanitansamble and Beyond:
Glow and Grow

Inspired by the success of ‘El Sistema’ which helped bring about social change through music among Venezuela’s most impoverished children, Sanitansamble was founded some ten years ago in Sanità, one of the poorest neighbourhoods of Naples. Through a programme of teaching cultural skills, with music at its core, it has developed ongoing Junior and Senior orchestras and opened the door to alternative lives for many at-risk children and young adults, helping them become disciplined, co-operative and confident citizens.

The BBT Communities grant will enable Sanitansamble to develop the same model in Forcella, another deprived and dangerous neighbourhood in Naples.
