Music for Children Foundation - NL
Music for Children Foundation (Stichting Muziek voor Kinderen) is based in the Netherlands. They offer children in disadvantaged positions new experiences and perspectives through music education, thereby also increasing their chances of financial independence.
Children of Medellín(Fundación Caminos) was founded in 2008, and promotes the social and societal integration of children who are disadvantaged by poverty, violence, neglect, sexual harassment and addiction with the aim of leading an independent and fulfilling life.
The Roots for Manglar go back to 2010, when the first music project at Children of Medellin was born named "Grupo Sararé", which resulted in various concert and a CD-recording. We continue to collaborate very closely with Fundación Caminos in various projects until this day!
Fundación Ángeles de Amor - El Carmen, COL
Fundación Ángeles de Amor(in short "Angeles") is a private foundation situated in a beautiful home in El Carmen de Viboral from where around 35 girls permanently live and learn together. The girls mostly come from vulnerable family situations in the city of Medellin, and are given the opportunity here to live in the countryside away from the city’s pollution and distractions. Since 2018 we've been teaching music classes here and we continue to teach as first generations leave, and new generations enter the home.
Fundación El Maná - La Ceja, COL
Fundación El Maná is a private foundation founded in 1989 whose main mission is to recover the joy of living for the children and adolescents they serve. They do so through a comprehensive model of social care that promotes and protects rights, strengthens values and expands awareness, of which music and art are essential components. El Maná is our latest partner and we've started our music education program with them in 2022.
