Dr. Woodson's work for UNICEF and Playing for Change in Honduras and Ecuador, August 2016.

In August 2016, Dr. Woodson was invited to bring drumming, drum circles and drum making to Honduras and Ecuador for UNICEF, arranged by Playing for Change, an international organization for building peace through music. His work in Honduras was with young people from broken families and in Ecuador he worked with Earthquake victims. In Honduras, his work was through the UNICEF Arts Center, COMVIDA. In Ecuador, Dr. Woodson worked with the well-known local Reggae band, Cocoa Roots seen in the videos. Below are videos about these projects.
