ART, BOOKS AND MOVIES FOR CHANGE

We are convinced of the positive impact that creativity and cultural activities have on local community development and social cohesion. Therefore,  and thanks to the NGO Children of the Andes, as well as to our GlobalGiving donors, Tiempo de Juego has decided to open up three new subjects in order to engage new children and youths to participate in the organization's activities. These new activities are Arts, Literature and the  “Petit Cinema-Forum”, where books, art and movies are used as a tool that allow participants to reflect on positive values promoted by TDJ’s work, such as respect, solidarity, self-worth, self-esteem, and empathy, among others.

An Entrepreneurship and Dream Fair

Ten youngsters belonging to the Theater and Music workshops received a one year-training which aim was to offer them the necessary tools to set into motion a positive and successful life plan.  In December 2014, as the project closure, Tiempo de Juego organized an Entrepreneurship Fair where these participants presented their own life plan to the children, youth and staff members of the organization.Likewise, professionals in the areas of sports, psychology, gastronomy, ITC and cultural management were invited to talk about their own working experiences. Thanks to their help and your constant support, we continue seeking to offer a colorful and magical setting that will fill kids’ minds with wonder and fantasy, motivating them to become dreamers and agents of change in their own community.
