Lift the Lid Brings Music to The School in a Cart!
With many thanks to a special donor, Lift the Lid has brought music to the street children at The School in a Cart in Cubao, the Philippines!
From healthy meals to uniforms, from proper showers and toothbrushes, to tutoring, spiritual guidance and love, The School in a Cart meets the needs of their local street children, and Lift the Lid stands behind them to help make it all possible.
This time we’re enticing the kids to stick around the center when they’re not in school by offering instruments and music lessons . . . and it’s working out better than expected.
The School in a Cart has formed a band and they’re touring churches, schools, and street corners, whoever they can inspire with their music. They’re learning. They’re practicing. They’re sharing their newly discovered talents, and they’re proud. We’re proud, too!
Here’s a YouTube video showing the children in the early stages of practicing and playing:
CNN in the Philippines did a special report on the music program at The School in a Cart:
Keeping street children safe through music
Please help us to continue to nourish, teach, and encourage dreams at The School in a Cart! Donate Here.
We have started training more children so those who are in the band can have alternates. Even those who are already in the band are learning to play another instrument. Macmac sings but he also started learning to play the keyboard. John Paul also sings and now is learning to play the bass guitar.
We need to do this so that when one is unable to come to a performance somebody is on hand to take the place of the one who couldn’t make it.
Pray for us so these children can play well and be encouraged to prefer staying in the Center to roaming in the street.
Praise the Lord for your participation! You have trained faithfully and in 3 1/2 months you have done great and the performances you did after are just amazing.
Praying for more opportunity to showcase you talent not merely to be noticed by more so to please the Lord who has given you this talent.
Keep on the goodworks!
