We provide musically inclined children from under privileged communities with mentoring programs in performance and community service rooted in orchestral music training. This campaign will help us build the capacity of our scholars to uplift their lives and provide alternative career opportunities for them in the future.
The Philippines is abundant with talented and musically inclined youth. However, the opportunity to develop their musical skills is often not a reality as these children come from families that can barely support their basic educational needs. In 2016, the Annual Poverty Indicators Survey showed that the country has about 3.8 million out of school children and youth.
Our program will give musically inclined children an opportunity to achieve their full musical potential. We aim to support orchestral music programs for our scholars to uplift their lives and help them contribute to the communities they live in.
Today, we are molding and nurturing the talents of more than 500 children and youth in the Luzon and Visayas regions of the Philippines. Through orchestral music training we strive to transform our scholars lives and give them opportunities to participate in an after school program that creates alternative career paths for them. Our mission is not only to enhance the musical talents of our scholars but to ensure they will be active contributors to the social development of their communities.
