    Although we often think of disease and polluted water supplies as the greatest of plagues in the developing world, we believe one of the most troubling pandemics of the 21st century is the indoctrination of hatred and the violence that stems from it. Our Arm Them with Instruments Program acts to combat that in a positive, creative, educational and nurturing manner.
