Teaming up with Sing me a Story

Teaming up with Sing me a Story!

Dear Supporter, 

We have some very exciting developments here in Quepos and one or two plans up our sleeves. We are really looking forward to what 2016 holds for this project!

We are very pleased to tell you that we are teaming up with the Sing Me a Story Foundation (SMAS) in 2016. SMAS works with children all around the world, turning their stories into songs. 

The partnership is part of a wider effort to create a stable learning environment for the children from the El Cocal community. El Cocal is an illegal settlement of mainly immigrant families and life there is a daily struggle for a lot of the families. 

What we are going to offer is a safe place where children can come before and after school hours or when school is closed. The children will be given a series of classes on social and emotional intelligence, as well as English lessons. It will be a fun and interactive space with lots of music and singing and creativity. Part of this will be for the children to write their own story, based on topics that we are covering. We will then be sending these stories over to the amazing team of songwriters that Sing me a Story has and get the stories turned into a song for the children. 

It is a wonderful gift to hear your own words sung back to you and we are hoping that this will inspire the children to carry on coming to the community center. In conjunction with this project, we are also raising money to be able to provide the children that join the project a healthy breakfast

We are really looking forward to the challenges, excitement and successes that we know 2016 is going to bring and we can't wait to share all of our developments with you!

With Gratitude, 

Kate
