BENEFITING: Ninos Con Valor Inc
EVENT DATE: Apr 07, 2017
As many of you already know, one of my ministries here in Bolivia has been teaching piano to some of the girls at Niños con Valor (shout out to Lynn Najem and Megan Hamm!!). This has been possible due to the fact that the girls' home has one of the rare pianos I've seen in Cochabmaba. That said, before my time in Bolivia ends in May, I'm hoping to raise enough money to buy a piano for the boys' home, so they too can have the posibility to learn how to play piano (because lets be honest, the world needs MANY more children learning how to play Heart and Soul--right Mom?? *wink*). Also, on a more serious note, as many of you know from personal experience, music can be a life changing tool. All of the children at Niños con Valor come from a background of trauma that they unfortunately carry with them in some capacity their entire lives. For many of my students, playing piano has become a positive outlet and in some cases, an important coping mechanism in their lives. With your help, I'm hoping that by purchasing a piano for the boys' home, this "gift of music" can be made available to even more children. Since prices here for a piano aren't always stable, I'm fundraising for a higher range piano. Any extra money will go towards helping to pay for piano lessons and any other materials/services (books, piano tuning, etc) associated with the piano. Thanks for your consideration! Your support means a lot!
