The main purpose was to give handicapped youths the chance to improve their skills through the music taking part into an orchestra. The orchestra practices every day and it gives concerts; in average of one per month. In addition, the institution also works with the artistic skills of the students, teaching them painting, dancing, among others. The students with fewer problems are trained in working inclusion. At the moment SINAMUNE has 62 students, all of them with mental and physical affections.


Host family.


The centre teaches how to play different instruments. When the kids have developed some skills they become part of the orchestra. Therefore, the kids practice for the orchestra concerts and presentations every day. Later, they have different classes like dancing, handicrafts, among others.


It will be better but not compulsory if the volunteer could have some experience working with kids with special needs. Also, having a musical knowledge will help the volunteer to have a stronger role in the
organization. SINAMUNE is open for all those volunteers who are willing to share experiences with people that need a lot more attention than others, people that have special needs. We are also open-minded  to all the ideas you will bring to improve your, our and the children’s situation.
