Sonidos Para La Vida is a non-profit organization dedicated to transforming the lives of children and young people in Guatemala through the practice of a musical instrument. The more than 800 children and youth in our program are away from gangs, leisure, and many harmful activities, all because they learn the passion for something good in their lives and, with it, achieve all its benefits. When you help Sonidos Para La Vida, you are helping to change the life of one more child in Guatemala.

Guatemala is a country full of contrasts. It has natural wealth and hardworking people. However, there is also a lot of poverty and state corruption. That is why projects are needed to give children a better opportunity through education. Culturally, children in this country grow up thinking that they cannot change their future. We teach them, with music, that everything is possible.


It is scientifically proven that the constant and structured practice of a musical instrument develops a large number of mental, calculation and physical skills, among others. Sounds For Life provides that to all the children who are part of the program. This training, in turn, makes each child grow up with a different perspective on their life. So far we have transformed the lives of hundreds of children and young people who are now productive for themselves, for their families and contry.

Long-Term Impact

The impact of our program is already palpable, because many children who were part of it, today are professionals of good for their communities. This is replicated every year, with every new child in the program. All those who are reached by our program grow in all these benefits and, although they must fight against their environment, they always do so with a greater chance of victory. For this reason, each year we want to reach at least one new school for more benefited children.
