Dance to end world hunger!

From El Progreso, Honduras…a few hours ago.


This event is called “Alto al Hambre” or “End Hunger,” and is an initiative begun by the international NGO World Vision (Visión Mundial). World Vision established an office in El Progreso about 2 years ago and is reaching out to local NGOs. They identified OYE as a promising partner, and collaborated with OYE and it’s radio program to help organize this event. The kids on the drums were Garifuna youth from Proniño. Several local NGOs took part in the performances, events, and fund-raising to support the cause of ending hunger in Africa. This is one of the first events of its kind, as most initiatives in El Progreso are meant to raise money for local organizations or causes. Now, Honduran youth have identified and rallied around an issue of international importance. OYE staff, scholars, and the audience were caught up in the rhythm and joined the drummers on-stage.
