We provide musically inclined children from under privileged backgrounds with mentoring programs in classical and orchestral music performance. This project will help us build the capacity of our scholars to provide alternative career opportunities for them in the future and uplift their lives, as well as that of their families. Through the formation given to these scholars, Ang Misyon also hopes to contribute to the larger goal of nation building in the Philippines.
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 provide orchestral music programs for our scholars to uplift their lives and help them contribute to the communities they live in.
As of 2018 Ang Misyon has touched the lives of 900 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 in the future. Our mission is not only to enhance the musical talents of our scholars but to ensure that they will be active contributors to the social development of their communities.
