Long time, no see! Don´t worry, we're back with a bunch of great news!
Every year, as you may know, Medellin holds an event full of colors, music and FLOWERS! It is called "Feria de Flores", commemorating the cultural richness of our region. Fundación Sirenaica participated in various events. Two concerts given by our kids from "Youth Singers".
1. A total of 50 children from our program held a concert right on a street, organized by the city mayor
2. 80 of our children offered a concert in colombian music at the Pablo Tobón Uribe theatre.
Both of the events showed an important improvement: some of our kids were able to sing some solos, which undoubtedly reinforced their talent and self-esteem. It was beautiful and breath-taking. These events were fully organized and directed by our young monitors which gain expertise everyday.
Our monitors keep training: one hour per week of choral direction, rythms, repertoire and concert set up.
Our progam is now benefitting 9 institutions, 250 children directly, and 2 new institutiones assigned to 9 of our young monitors in alliance with Municipio de Medellin, from which a total of 650 students are being taught.
We invite you to share our webpage and the pictures attached. New videos were posted and it is all very outstanding!
Once again thank you for your donations, your interest. All of the above was possible with YOUR HELP!

Monitors after pedagogy workshop
“Ampliando horizontes” also known as “Youth singers transform lives by teaching others” wants to grow even more. Results can be seen in the children who receive lessons from young monitors . Still, we need A LOT of help! Fundación Sirenaica is committed with thousands of students, all of them linked to one of our programs or chourses. The thing is, each program counts on different sponsors for financial aid. “Youth singers” counts on GlobalGiving’s donors; we want you all, our dear donators to spread the voice. Help us find more beneficent souls as you were to contribute to the expansion of this cause.
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:
Planning a class not as a job duty but as an encounter between student and teacher to exchange knowledge.
Using routine or repetition as an activity that encourages rather than bore.
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.

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.
