Thanks to the fundraising concert by Rumbarroco and La Donna Musicale in 2022, the following achievements were made:
The support for the initiative of Community Mental Health in the Cardenal Quintero Municipality of Merida, Venezuela. The concert garnered significant backing and support, significantly contributing to its success and continuity.
In Santo Domingo, a Community of Learning and Practice has been formed to tackle mental health issues. The multi-sectorial steering committee, comprising 12 leaders and stakeholders, aims to raise awareness, educate, and create a Community of Practice on Mental Health. Despite initial challenges with facilitation and training, efforts are ongoing to establish alliances and overcome obstacles. The committee recently conducted participatory assessments and workshops, and plans are underway for the next visit, focusing on presenting findings, addressing bullying, and administering a socio-emotional questionnaire. The committee remains committed to promoting mental well-being and resilience in the community.
These accomplishments demonstrate the positive impact and solidarity generated by the concert and the commitment of Rumbarroco and La Donna Musicale to the development of education and the community.
