      music lessons for Colombian kids.

      news report:
      BOGOTA, Colombia, Oct. 3, 2007 – Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates today pledged U.S. funds to provide music education and other services to children displaced by the years of war here. Gates signed an agreement of intention to provide the funds after a meeting with Colombia’s president Alvaro Uribe Velez here at Casa de Narino, the presidential palace.

      The new $343,000 grant will allow the National Batuta Foundation and Colombia’s Presidential Agency for Social Action and International Cooperation to expand to about 20 areas helping about 3,600 children along the remote areas of the Pacific Coast.
