Every year, on the first Tuesday of December, Liga MAC’s Volunteers organize a community event called Christmas Fiesta. The event is to celebrate the spirit og giving and takes place at The Shoppes at Palmilla. A group of Liga MAC’s students become the ambassadors of the night by singing Christmas Carols. Thanks to probono collaboration of Maestro Mario Lozano, a local professional musician and singer, a selected group of 18 students out of the 328 that we have under our wing this year, are having this fabuluois experience that otherwise they could not have. Being part of the choir gives them the chance to express themselves through singing, they gain self-confidence and also increase their general knowledge.
We mentor and follow-up our kids along their way through a variety of activities that supplement their preparation for life, such as the self-esteem & social skills workshop. The workshop is designed for 7th & 8th graders, and is taught at Liga MAC’s Support Center. The Purpose of the workshop is to strengthen each of the concepts of self-esteem through games and dynamics, – I recognize myself, I accept myself and I respect myself -. They also learn and practice coexistence and human values basic rules to be able to relate with others. Fifty students out of the 328 that we have under our wing this year are taking this workshop.
Thank you very much for having joined us for the Day of the Dead event last week. Your support is truly appreciated!
