Dear friends,

Everything began with a few magic notes.

The time of unforgettable moments,

The time,

For an entire village

To join the fun.

A reviving change for some of us,

A lot of joy for others,

Time to forget about daily problems.

And to help those magic notes hold on,

Today,

I have decided to talk about music, talent and hope.


When Experience Speaks

At 14, I gathered a band of my own.

My parents did so right that they gave me a guitar,

At the time when I was just getting on for 12.

I, in turn, would like to give the same brilliant opportunity to someone else

By giving a guitar into a child’s hands

Because even such a simple gesture may become a real incentive for him/her,

And you will understand that I have a reason for saying this.


An inseparable sphere of playing which is essential for uncovering a gift

Think about your grand-children, children, teenagers or just people that are close to your heart.

How many times you have said or heard the words: “Instead of amusing yourself, you’d better do this or that!”, or else “Do it right now, you have already been playing for too long!”

What I want to say is very simple: When you speak about children, you cannot separate the sphere of playing from their life.

Because learning new things and making fun, studying and playing are all natural for their age.

Unfortunately, limited by the frames of everyday preoccupations, teenagers and children from “problem” families have a tendency to forget this, and sometimes take no notice of their gifts.

A gift of musicality, for example


Music: Joy and Spontaneity

When I meet teenagers or children from poor families and give a guitar into their hands, you understand that I have a right to a smile.
 

Yes, I have a right to a very broad smile.

 
Because at any age – not only at their age – we understand that music in itself is a thing of genius!
 

Music as a Lift Force of the Society

And though all my encounters show that music brings comfort and joy, for the Francis Goya Foundation music is also a serious thing.

Because I do not only strive to awaken a passion for music or artistic self-expression in destitute children,

The desire to play music is important; but I want to make something that is more.

I want to make an extensive course of studies available for the most gifted children and teenagers.
 

The Francis Goya Foundation: An opportunity for destitute children and teenagers to open toward a new life

The aim of the Francis Goya Foundation is to help the most destitute children and teenagers find the so much-needed support in the long run,  if they want to go in for music or dancing, and, maybe, to find a professional occupation.


Meeting destitute children and teenagers

To be able to opportunely help destitute children find their musical or artistic way, I meet them personally.

I visit:

    •
Villages in the mountains,
    • Villages in the valley,
    • Poor suburban districts,
    • Orphanages
    • Hospitals,
    • Schools.

With my guitar.

To see for myself that I may bring something to their life with the help of music.

The guitar that I give to them is indeed the easiest way to approach music.
 
And when I see that children demonstrate a sincere interest to music, singing or dancing, I do my best so that such children, in their everyday life, should have access to the necessary facilities or classes. 


The Francis Goya Foundation: The Structure

In the course of time, I have understood an obvious thing: to be competent and to achieve good results, I need support; I should work out a structure and have an energetic team.

I have never doubted my decision to create a structure for control and distribution of aid to destitute children and teenagers all over the world.

In May 2011, I created the Francis Goya Foundation.


The Francis Goya Foundation: Collection of Funds

To help poor children and teenagers through music lessons or artistic self-expression classes, the Francis Goya Foundation needs donations.


The Francis Goya Foundation helps destitute children and teenagers gain access to musical instruments and studies.

Because they have no access to musical instruments.

Because they have no instructors who would help reveal and further develop their musical or artistic gifts.

And the Francis Goya Foundations, through its workshops, provides an opportunity for the most gifted ones among them to gain successful musical or artistic experience in a milieu that is dynamic, competent, and fully focused on their success and their future.


With the help of your donations, the Francis Goya Foundation:

1.Finds and buys musical instruments for low-income young people from all over the world.

2.Finds and delegates instructors for teaching children from low-income families all over the world.

3.Helps destitute children and teenagers find access to premises near their homes where they can practice music, dancing or artistic self-expression to their choice.

4.Helps talented children and teenagers from “problem” families develop their gifts (in music, dancing or arts).

So that poor children and teenagers could, if they wish, study music, dancing and singing.

So that musically-gifted children and teenagers from “problem” families could develop their gift over a long term and with support from instructors of the Francis Goya Foundation.
