Childhood full of sounds

By Edwin Ruiz | Project Leader

Joy
Joy

After 36 years of civil war, Guatemala has suffered many social problems that have sunk in hatred, despair, distrust and many other things that only generate poverty and inequality. However, despite all these problems, many children today are changing their reality, because they are growing up with a new idea of life because they have music in their development.

This is the case of Ruth, a 9-year-old living in Chimaltenango, one of the areas hardest hit by the civil war. Ruth, from very small had the opportunity to be part of Sounds For Life and today his life is music and joy. She plays the violin and always excited a new concert, to practice more your instrument and to share with his teammates of his orchestra.

And Ruth, there are thousands of children who, with the program Sounds for Life, are growing with this new element in their lives, "MUSIC", and all the joy, discipline, perseverance, skills and all those factors that influence directly in their formation, to be good people, sure of themselves and with the firm conviction that Guatemala can be different and can have a better future.

Every time you collaborate with Sounds For Life, is collaborating with a whole country to generate social change we need and to end once and for all the violence that prevails every day. Help more children to have this opotunidad in your life because all Guatemalan children in need.
