Challenge

Many children in El Alto lack the resources and socioeconomic standing to pursue musical opportunities and learning traditional dance. The Aymara culture's customs and traditions are at risk of being lost, hindering the development of personal and social growth among these children. There is a pressing need to provide resources and platforms for them to connect with their cultural heritage and develop their artistic talents.

Solution

This program offers a solution by prioritizing two key areas: musical artistic expression and artistic expression in dance. Through music education, including rhythmic and melodic training, music theory, and composition, children will strengthen their musical skills and have an outlet for expressing their emotions. Additionally, by learning native and national dances, they will connect with their cultural roots, develop body expression skills, and have opportunities for creativity.

Long-Term Impact

The preservation and revitalization of Aymara customs and traditions will foster a stronger cultural identity among the children, empowering them with a sense of pride and belonging. The development of musical and dance skills will not only provide them with valuable artistic abilities but also enhance their overall personal and social growth. These children will become ambassadors of their cultural heritage, passing on their knowledge and love for music and dance to future generations.
