August 17, 2011 Making Music in Chacraseca

JustHope Partners, United Church of the Valley in Murietta, CA, continued their support of music education for children in Chacraseca by offering a Music Camp for the 4th year in a row!


Using traditional Nicaraguan folk music, sessions were offered teaching kids to sing and to play the recorder, the chimes, the guitar, the keyboard, the drums, and the marimba! (UCV has also donated instruments for to the schools for the kids to use). AND sessions were also offered to teach the Nicaraguan classroom teachers how to continue the learning by incorporating music into their teaching.



Two years ago, UCV began paying a music teacher so the children's exposure to music would be more than once a year. He's doing a great job...

And this year, students from past years' music camps were back -- teaching the younger kids!


Long term... these two global partners (UCV and Chacraseca) hope to develop a Music School in Chacraseca where youth and adults can learn to play instruments and do traditional Nicaraguan dancing.

Here's the Tractor you bought!


The 270 farmers who share it are already planting their fields. They rent the tractor by the day and no single farmer has to bear the cost of owning their own tractor.

More Wow!

And here's the High School you helped start in Santa Emilia!


110 students from Santa Emilia and 100 from other communities are attending!
