In Ireland, people in need of international protection must wait in a direct provision centre while waiting to have their asylum claims processed.During this time their lives are in limbo. They are waiting. And waiting some more. Sometimes this takes months. Sometimes it takes years. It’s a LOT of waiting and uncertainty. To help stave off the boredom of all that waiting and hopefully make a positive impact on their mental health and quality of life, I offered to give weekly guitar lessons at the Direct Provision Centre in my community. I was generously loaned guitars, but they have to leave with me at the end of the lesson, meaning the residents have no opportunity to play or practice during the week.
