una vez más les agradecemos por su apoyo en nuestro proyecto. Se aproxima el Día de la Madre y qué mejor regalo que una serenata de nuestros coros solo para ella? Si vives en Medellin no dudes en contactarnos para darle un grandioso regalo a tu mamá y a la vez contribuir a nuestro proyecto "Youth singers tranform lives by teaching others".
Te dejamos un testimonio de una de nuestras jóvenes profesoras: "Cada año comienza un nuevo reto, nuevos niños por conocer y espero ansiosa el momento en el que las audiciones llegan, escuchar cada niño y decirle que puede ser parte de un barco que viajará por todo Colombia, que puede ser parte de un mundo donde reina el amor. Luego, las clases y su mundo mágico un momento donde todo lo malo se olvida y la música que se vuelve la protagonista d ela historia abriendo los corazones de esos seres hermosos que llamamos niños; la entonación de una nota al unísono y un ritmo que genera felicidad, la cancion que transforma vidas, son la mayor satisfacción que puedo tener al saber que esos niños se convierten en parte de mi vida, unidos a mi por la música." - Maria Elena, monitora

Finally, I leave yo to this beautiful testimony from one of our monitors: "A new challenge begins each year, new kids to know and I anxiosuly wait for the audition moments, to listen to every child and to tell them they will be part of this ship that will travel through Colombia; tell them that they are now part of a world where only love rules. Clases are a magical moment were everything bad is forgotten and music becomes the protagonist of the story, opening this precious kids' hearts, the songs transforming their lives. These kids are the biggest satisfaction i can have, knowing they will become part of my life, joined together by music "- Maria Elena, monitor
RAISE YOUR VOICE!!
Fundación Sirenaica wishes you a Happy, Prosperous, Succesfull and Full of MUSIC 2015! We know well that this is a time to desire, wish and tryout for new goals, to review last year's acomplishments and to learn from mistakes. Pur Christmas was full of concerts and performances. Here is a testimony of one of our young teachers/monitors, a reflextion of 2014 results:
"2014 was a year of new challenges and learning in this adventure that has now been living for two years and promises to continue at giant steps. Children haven’t yet lost their love for music through all this time they’ve been singing; quite the opposite, they desire bigger and more ambitious challenges, they dream of art as a way of life and observe carefully with a lot of kindness the aptitudes and attitudes of their teachers. “Youth singers transform lives by teaching others” is a project that has been able to capture the kid’s attention, that has reached bigger and more important scenarios and that has offered presentations with better quality each time.
As a teacher in this process, I am amazed with the children´s progress, the parents ‘and school members’ recognition, the satisfaction of everyone after each performance, the love of transmitting knowledge the same way I received it and the blessing of being useful to my community, my country and humanity.
The impact is quite big and each time there is more young people betting for education, there are more kids in love with art, singing and music. THANK YOU to everyone who has supported in any way this dedicated work. With your support we advance into a more human city, a better future. "
Finally, I recommend just a few things for enjoying this upcoming year:
1. Listen to more music. Music has the power to activate our emotions, our brain and and feelings.
2. Take time to care for yourself. Give yourself a present for you efforts, don´t be to harsh when things don´t come out just right.
3. Care about others. Not just collaborating with foundations and projects; begin at home, being generous and loving with your family.
4. Write down two or three realistic goals, and review them monthly. KEEP UP!
5. BE HAPPY AND SMILE A LITTLE BIT MORE!
Just try to be balanced, to reach equilibrium between all our human areas: physical, spiritual, intelectual, emotional.
My best regards and wishes ,
The project you have all helped us sort out has some good news for you. Even though we still need more of your help we have managed to acquire some resources to keep it going without interruption. Seeing the results of these thousands of children growing cannot stop and with your help it won´t. Your help consists not only on donations but on sharing our link, our Facebook pictures, the upcoming events, the link to GlobalGiving, watching our videos, etcetera!
WHAT’S NEW ABOUT OUR SINGERS?
Two of our senior girls began teaching classes too. This means that two new groups are learning from these young monitors.
Our monitors received a workshop on pedagogy, full of topics such as:
Our monitors are constantly teaching but they never quit their own formation . Up to date they work 2 hours per week and with your help they will be able to teach more.
All monitors together are teaching a total of 250 children.

MY BEST REGARDS!
Regards to all our donors,
April an May are two important months for our organization. Which better months to congratulate and encourage our foundation´s moms and children: the essence of our work!
Mothers are a golden treasure, they silently take care of us, and delicately hold our hands even if they are not physically beside you. They follow our steps with stealth, keeping us from falling. A mother will focus all of her effort to teach us how to live intensley, savouring each and every instant. They teach us gratitude, the value of simple things, courage and patience.
It is beacuse of the efforts of thousands of moms that Fundación Sirenaica has grown up to be what it is. Their love, passion, committment and interest has lead this foundation to be what it is, and these children to become the young people they are.
NEWS AND UPCOMING EVENTS
Mothers, congratulations for the the constant and tireless work taht you do; for waking up every day, for rasing you child and for your infinite love.
Sing when you want, sing when you want.... just, ALWAYS SING!
