Recently, principals and teachers from different schools met with us to make clear their desire to work for the children who are under their charge.
Each of these schools has an approximate population of between 400 and 500 children, so the determination of the directors and teachers of the different schools is fundamental for the Sounds for Life program to have the necessary impact on all these children .
Each school director has proposed to fight with all his efforts so that music can transform the lives of his students. The best news is that the teachers in their charge also want to work every day to make this possible and that shows that together we can achieve that transformation in our communities that we so desire.
Sounds for Life currently works in 11 different schools, most of them in rural areas where they live in precarious conditions, however, it is in these types of locations where our program reaches children's hearts more easily and we can notice that joy with which they receive music in their lives.
If we continue to work together, we, with your donations, the directors of the schools and the teachers, have the security to influence the lives of all these children and young people and to transform their lives and their reality of life.
Let's keep working like this, because the children of Guatemala need it.
December is a month full of joy and hope for many people. Our children and
young people have even more hope that everything can change and be better for them and for your community.
Sounds for Life promotes a Great Christmas Concert, where the
children and young people more outstanding of all our program. In this concert we bring together more than 200 musicians who, with all their joy, participate and give their best to take hope to all the people who listen to them.
When you contribute to our organization, you also promote with us this type of
events, which greatly impact the minds of our children and youth,
awakening and strengthening in each of them the idea that with hard work and effort
You can achieve all your goals.
In our program we already have more than 3000 children and young people and we are only present in 7 public schools of our community. There is still a lot of work to be done
The violence we are living around the world discourages us at times, and tragedies where innocent lives are lost cause us much pain and sadness, but ... THERE IS STILL HOPE.
The “Sonidos para la Vida” program has one of its main objectives being to enable our communities to find new ways of living together and new ways of doing things right.
We recently did our GRAN CONCERT ASSEMBLY, where about 250 children and young people who represented the different Schools where “Sonidos Para La Vida” works participated.
This GREAT CONCERT ASSEMBLE becomes the only opportunity for most of these children, where they can present the result of their dedication to learning a musical instrument. Many of these young musicians have never had the opportunity to step onto a stage and feel the excitement and joy of being in front of a crowd of hundreds; and that is why this event is so important because there every child can realize that he is able to achieve great things, achieve his dreams, work and dedication.
The collaboration that you give us is also invested, in this type of events where the main thing is the children and their music.
These 250 musicians are only a small part of the thousands of children and young people that make up the great family of Sounds for Life and that pushes us to continue working, so that all these children have the same opportunities.
Thank you for your contribution, for your confidence and for believing that the joy of music in a child's life can make a difference in society.
