Regards to all our donors,

April an May are two important months for our organization. Which better months to congratulate and encourage our foundation´s moms and children: the essence of our work! 

Mothers are a golden treasure, they silently take care of us, and delicately hold our hands even if they are not physically beside you. They follow our steps with stealth, keeping us from falling. A mother will focus all of her effort to teach us how to live intensley, savouring each and every instant. They teach us gratitude, the value of simple things, courage and patience. 

It is beacuse of the efforts of thousands of moms that Fundación Sirenaica has grown up to be what it is. Their love, passion, committment  and interest has lead this foundation to be what it is, and these children to become the young people they are.

Hello, hello, HAPPY NEW YEAR to you and your family! It is a new year and we hope it comes with the best. To begin, Fundación Sirenaica wishes you the best year, we hope everything comes out as you wish and as you deserve it.

Our project is growing each day, everything because of donor and sponsor support. Let me tell you some more..  

What did 2013 mean for us?

 

  •       1400 new kids were auditioned.
  •       We had approximately 2500 spectators at our concerts.
  •       350 kids were taught with the help of GlobalGiving donors.
  •       We were able to accompany various events, and did some work for the government.
  •       Our coverage grew to some new institutions.
  •       Today, more children and youth can raise their voice

 

Follow-up to our Project Objective

 

  •       During the year we taught, with the help of our young monitors, the importance of ethical, civil and moral values, the relevance of peaceful coexistence and national identity. We promoted the culture of respect to the other, hand- in-hand with self-care, all of this through singing and choral discipline.
  •       We worked based on the guidelines given by the Ministry of Education, including life skills as in: Self-awareness, empathy and interpersonal relationships.
  •       Our project has shown to cultivate trust in our student and monitor’s families, who constantly witness their children progress and work with a discipline and commitment unbelievable to anyone’s eyes.

 

Our goal this year: to keep growing. Reaching hundreds of children every day cultivate their blossoming talents; give them a chance to raise their voices. They sing for your collaboration, just invite someone else to join this initiative that has already touched thousands of hearts and wishes to embrace some more.

 

As always, my best regards and wishes for you and everyone,

 

Elisa Escobar

“The experience of transforming the world through education, plus, through artistic education, is a path contended  by teacher and student hand to hand. The chorus starts turning into a reflection of oneself and when one overcomes its own flaws, clarity in the students unchains in front of one´s eyes." - Deniss Zapata, Monitor

Christmas is coming and our choruses are preparing for a great doses of music. Many concerts result in November and December, and our young monitors are training their children and singing along with the sound of New Year.

Each monitor is in charge of more than one children chorus, and 22 of our eldest students have already begun their training into becoming tutors themselves.  Music is spreading throughout the city.

We´ve had the opportunity to offer concerts, lead by our monitors, within multiple schools and public institutions.Thank you once again for letting us contribute to the magic of what is living a New Year celebration accompanied by the voices of hundreds of children. Thanks to you,  their sweet voices rejoice every heart. Don´t hesistate to donate once again to help us continue this labor.

Let the bells ring!!!!
