On behalf of the foundation, today we are submitting a series of pictures of several pretty letters that we recently received from our students on the seedbed shoruses. They all express thair thank you, which we wish to make extensive to all of you, because all of these children wouldn't have had such opporunity if it weren't for our dearest donors.
As newsflash we can tell you that our seedbed program was supported by the Municipality and several individuals who supported the foundation and the children, acting as "godparents" to our project.
Thanks to all your added support, as well as governmental participation and donor aid, throughout the year we attended and trained three hundred and twenty eight children (328) between ages eight (8) and fourteen (14) . Also, twelve (12) student teachers (monitors) were newly trained; ten (10) young teachers dictated classes and courses on their own and nine (9) educational institutions were favoured.
We are glad to bring some news over to you all since our last time. In this opportunity, we are happy to present you some testimonies of some of our children of the seedbeds and their parents, where they speak about their progress in the foundation and how their lives have changed since they began singing.

She came into the class with a big smile on her face, like always. The kids ran to greet her and she was happy to see them. Their teacher was already there and gave the order to start today's class and training.
Angie is only eleven years old and is part of the Santa Teresa Chorus since four years ago. Angie is a very committed and talent full kid and her teacher realised such thing since the first class she attended. Is because of her helpful attitude that she was chosen as a monitor for the Seedbed Choirs and as of today, the students respect her and follow her instructions.

With your support, young kids like Angie Juliana will be able to receive full training towards becoming choir directors and teachers. It is because of your constant support that we have identified a lot of talent in direction within our students.
Today we are proud to tell you that our young monitors are in charge of 600 students of ages between 8 and 14, whom are part of the seedbed choirs.
October 2017: Our young monitors will have the chance to train in choral direction with the prestigious Cuban Teacher Digna Guerra, who has earned several international prizes in choral direction.
Feel free to spread the VOICE and tell some of your friends about our beautiful project! You will feel happy! :)
