News from the Ludoteca

Dear supporters,
It is a pleasure to share with you our recent achievements and efforts to keep improving the support we provide to our children and adolescents here at the Ludoteca.
Our promoters keep receiving psychology workshops and training aimed at improving their school support and childcare skills. We would like to highlight the great work of three of our youngest promoters, Elizabeth, Carla and Wanderly, who are doing a great job in implementing the new methodology they are learning during the above mentioned workshops.
We recently started working with adolescents in child domestic labor. We offer two workshops per month, dealing with emotional issues, low self-esteem, and adolescence in general. They are really enjoying these workshops because there is no other place in Nueva Rinconada providing this kind of service.
It is winter in Lima and it is cold in the mountains where the Ludoteca is situated. Humidity and drizzle leak into our center because the uralita roof is more than ten year old. We therefore organized a fundraising event here in Lima, in order to be able to change it. Thanks to the efforts made by promoters and the children and adolescents' mothers, we managed to raise the money.
Keeping our center running is a great challenge, but we keep learning and improving our work.
Thank you for believing in us and for your continued support.

Best regards,

Eveli

Celebrate Bonus Day with us!

Dear Supporters,

We are sending this special report to let you know that Wednesday, July 15 is BONUS DAY! As you know, donations made to our project will be matched by Globalgiving at 50% (up to $1,000 per donor), starting at 9am EDT (3pm ECST). There are $115,000 available in matching funds!

We are also happy to inform you that we finally found a new venue to rent for La Casa de Panchita. We will send some pictures soon! We are going to move there this very week. However, we do hope this is going to be a temporary home and that, with your support, we will be able to secure our own house!

Despite this turmoil, we keep receiving our girls every Sunday and our weekly activities are up and running! Our girls are very curious and excited about the new house and they will soon visit it! We are planning some great outdoors activities with them, since we now have a little garden and there are many public parks in the new neighbourhood.

Please consider supporting us during this special event. We will write soon from our new "casa"!

Best regards,

Blanca Figueroa

All donations made to our project will be matched by Globalgiving at 50% (up to $1,000 per donor), starting at 9am EDT (3pm ECST). There are $115,000 available in matching funds!

We are also happy to inform you that we finally found a new venue to rent for La Casa de Panchita. We will send some pictures soon! We are going to move there this very week.

Despite this turmoil, we keep receiving our girls every Sunday and our weekly activities are up and running! We had a great time last week crafting pancil bags for them to use at school (as you can see in the picture). Our girls are very curious and excited about the new house and they will soon visit it! We are planning some great outdoors activities with them, since we now have a little garden and there are many public parks in the new neighbourhood.

Please consider supporting us during this special event. We will write soon from our new "casa"!
