Our partners

SDM works with partners on the ground throughout the Americas. Some of these organizations provide services for kids, some are artists' collectives, but each one does amazing work. We love these organizations, and you will too!

Allan, the director of Caras Alegres, had just as much fun playing violin with SDM as the kids!
