The world-renowned violinist and UN Messenger of Peace, Midori, travelled to rural Viet Nam to meet with and perform for villagers in remote and poverty-stricken communities where projects supported by IFAD have been working to improve conditions.
As part of her annual outreach tour, Midori and three young musicians visited ethnic minority communities in Tuyen Quang province and perform for local audiences. While there, Midori met with rural women to learn more about the challenges they face, which include extreme poverty, food insecurity and malnutrition, and the impact the IFAD-supported project has had on their lives.
“I think that music can be a very powerful connector because it’s a common ground for all people,” said Midori during her tour.
IFAD, together with the Government of Viet Nam, has recently completed the Agriculture, Farmers and Rural Areas Support Project in the Tuyen Quang, Ninh, Thuan and Gia Lai Provinces.
