Hands up is part of one of our stretching, joy, union routines. It is beautiful to see the happy faces of the children and the bright look of admiration for their teachers, hope, respect for their classmates and the joy of sharing

We continue to transform the lives of many children. This year we have 1500 students of different levels in Sirenaica; 800 have the support of the Municipality of Medellín. Susana who has gone from the project of transforming lives to a more advanced choir, tells us her story, her journey.

 

Thanks to you, the donors, we can continue giving opportunities to many children in the city. Thanks for your help

Medellín, year 2001. Violence, inequality, insecurity, invisible barriers, despair, fear. This is the year in which Sirenaica arrives to the neighborhoods to harvest hope, joy, to look children into their eyes and listen to them, to discover singing talents  and invite them to form a choir. A choir? A chorus? What is a chorus? - they asked? Yes, a chorus.

Did you know that today Medellín has one of the largest choirs of children and young people in Colombia? It's happening in Medellín and it's transforming the city simultaneously...

Medellín, año 2001. Violencia, desigualdad, inseguridad, barreras invisibles, desesperanza, miedo. Ese es el año en que Sirenaica llega a los barrios a sembrar esperanza, alegría, a mirar a los niños a los ojos y a escuchar a muchos para descubrir talentos para el canto y a invitarlos a formar un coro, ¿Un coro? ¿Un coro? ¿Qué es un coro' -  preguntaban. Sí, un coro...


¿Sabías que hoy Medellín cuenta con uno de los coros de niños y jóvenes más grandes de Colombia? Está sucediendo en Medellín y de paso la está transformando. Corre la voz...

A punto de terminar el primer mes de este nuevo año, es momento de reflexionar qué hicimos en el año 2018. Enero es un mes de plantearnos inquietudes, hacer balances frente al último año, empezar con propósitos, y tomar decisiones para el resto del año. 

Para nosotros, por ejemplo, nos es grato recordar que en 2018 se beneficiaron 400 alumnos.  Hablando de números, el costo anual por niño fue de 70 dólares. Cada alumno recibió 18 horas mensuales de formación.

 

Cambiar vidas, tocarlas, dar oportunidades. Pudimos guiar el proceso interno del estudiante para demostrarse a sí mismo que SI ES CAPAZ, fortaleciendo así su autoestima. Los resultados los comprueban la sonrisa, los ojos, las expresiones de cada uno de los niños y niñas que se benefician de nuestro programa.

A punto de terminar el primer mes de este nuevo año 2019, es momento de reflexionar qué hicimos en el año 2018. Enero es un mes de plantearnos inquietudes, hacer balances frente al año transcurrido, empezar con propósitos concretos, y tomar decisiones para el resto del año. 

Para nosotros, por ejemplo, nos es grato recordar que en 2018 se beneficiaron 400 alumnos.  Hablando de números, el costo anual por niño fue de 70 dólares. Cada alumno recibió 18 horas mensuales de formación.

"Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'" - Martin Luther King

 

On the verge of finishing the first month of this new year, it is time to  stop and reflect on what we did during 2018. January is a month to review concerns, balance results against the former year, search for a purpose, and make decisions for the year just starting .

For instance, we are pleased in reminiscing. In 2018, 400 students benefited from our program. Speaking numbers, the annual cost per child was USD70. Each student received 18 hours of training per month.

Change lives and grant opportunities. We were able to guide the internal process of the student into showing them that IF THEY ARE CAPABLE, thus strengthening their self-esteem. The results? the smile, the eyes, the expressions of each of the children who benefit from our program.

This year, our purpose is to stretch relationship with our recurrent donors, and to spread the VOICE about all of our upcoming projects. 

Spread the VOICE.

"It is better to leave a trace than to wal a milllion steps"

Within our monitors' classes and lectures, we discover new teaching talents. Some kids even begin to spend their free time with their freinds, and spread the love and passion for this art that is music, and leaving new illusions of life, hope and peace. This is why we decided to create this video for you. Please enjoy the magic of leaving a trace trough music. 
Dentro de las clases vamos descubriendo nuevos talentos para futuros profesores. Algunos niños incluso practican en sus ratos libres con sus amigos, contagiando el amor y la pasicpon por el arte de la musica, y sembrando nuevas ilusiones de vida, de esperanza, de paz. Por eso decidimos crear este video. Por favor, disfrute la magia de dejar una huella a través de la música.

 

Please, enjoy this, your video. 

 

Best,

Our dearest donor

This year we happily started a training program for all of our monitors, who are part of our teacher group. We have three different group of monitors: (i) a group of new monitors which recently began their training as such, (ii) the group of current monitors who already received the basic training and ar currently dictating classes to their groups, and (iii) the most experienced monitors who are training to become teachers.

This year we updated our working methodology considering previous experiences of our General Director María Adelaida, who returned from Germany.

We had a three-day training day in which all of our monitors and teachers participated in several talks and workshops with immense enthusiasm.

 

Please feel free to share your experience with our project!

 

Best regards,

Our group of eldest monitors
