Christmas is always a good opportunity to live and share special things, especially through music.
That's why What Every year, sounds for Life organizes a Christmas concert where many young musicians participate in our program throughout the year.
They are always motivated by the special music that is played at this time of year, but it means much more because it represents many hours of rehearsal and a lot of dedication from all of them. Throughout this time, many children and young people of their age are kept entertained using the Internet, meeting with bad friends, wind television; However, our musicians deviate from all that and decide to use their time in music and to Excel personally.
When you help sounds for life, it also helps thousands of children and young people use their time in useful things and change their lives and those of their families.
Remember that your financial contribution is used in more than 3.000 children who are benefited in our project, but it takes much more to do, and we trust that you will be part of this beautiful project that only aims to "change lives through Music".
In Chimaltenango, a department of Guatemala, Work teaches Débora, and every day his passion is always the same: Teach to live music closely.
She sings, dances and plays many instruments, all so that her students always pay attention and fall in love with music.
Mr. Débora comes from a family directly affected by a war that lived our country for more than 30 years. This family, like many others, had to separate for what she grew up with the help of her grandmother. However, the music has always attracted him and graduated as a music teacher and nowadays he is also a volunteer in the work of Sounds For Life and it is people like her that help us to continue working so that more and more children reach the benefits that the music provides.
Thanks to the help you give to sounds for life, teachers like Debora can continue to work for more than 3.000 boys and girls and continue to close the wounds that the war left in a country so rich, but at the same time so poor , such as Guatemala.
Jocotenango is a town in Guatemala with approximately 20,500 inhabitants and most of its people are fighters, however, this town has been invaded by a large number of gangs and organized crime, meaning that the danger to children and youth is constant.
The municipal government of Jocotenango and Sonidos Para La Vida made an alliance to create a different opportunity, where the members of this community can dedicate their time to music; that is why the Municipal School of Music is created, where Sonidos Para La Vida takes charge of teaching and at the same time donates the necessary instruments for the daily work of said school.
This project has already been created 6 years and each year it has an average attendance of 90 students of all ages.
Each time you provide support to Sonidos Para La Vida, you are also supporting these projects that have an incalculable benefit for entire communities.
Please, help us to continue working in Jocotenango and in other communities that in the same way need all the possible efforts to change the social reality that we live and transform it into a life full of hope and opportunities.
