ANG MISYON's newest satellite is Talim Island, Rizal, Philippines, where the indigent youth are given free Classical Music education, instruments, uniforms, transportation/performance allowances, & meals. This project will provide 20 kids with these benefits for at least a year. Classical Music has the power to nurture upstanding citizens of humanity, aids in the eradication of poverty through social development, and "transmits the highest values: solidarity, harmony, & mutual compassion".
Talim Island is the largest lake island in the heart of the Laguna basin, accessible only by a 2-hour motorboat ride that frequents only once a day. Basic necessities such as electricity are intermittent. The satellite's children are starting Music from scratch, instruments are scarce, and there is not enough money to pay teachers. The general mindset of the community's youth is that there is nothing beyond Secondary schooling. Some kids do drugs or have no means to go to the mainland
This project will provide the kids of Talim Island the opportunity to achieve their full musical potential through the Classical Music discipline, with the ultimate hope of creating a positive impact on their community.
This project will teach 20 kids of Classical Music, mold and nurture them to become upstanding citizens of Talim Island, of the Philippines, & of humanity. It will also help redevelop the country's Arts & Culture scene since the movement would cascade to communities other than Talim Island. Music will transform the current mindset into having the hope & desire to go back to school in order to look forward to a career. Music will also prevent them from living a life of risk.
