the gift of music In Claire’s neighborhood, many children grow up to become prostitutes and thieves. But Claire’s story is different.

At age 16 she was given the gift of music when she received a guitar. On that day she didn’t just received the gift of a guitar, but she was given the gift to dream about who she could become.

    This is so inspiring, its important that children be shown something they can improve in themselves.

    Oh, this made me cry! One of my boys in Ecuador would love to have a guitar and learn to play it, or go to a baseball camp. I am hoping to send enough for his birthday that he would be able to achieve at least one of these dreams.

    As someone who leads worship and teaches singing, I loved this post and video! Thank you Compassion for helping this young lady to reach her dreams and in turn pass the gift of music on to others!
