We went for camping :) Nos fuimos a acampar

[Abajo puedes leer el reporte en español]

Thanks to you support, our children can learn while playing and having fun! Last month, during two days and one night, 14 children from CRAN were able to live the experience of a wonderful camp.

“We ate marshmallows, we had competitions, my team found the treasure, we wrote letters, some of which were secret, we made paper flowers, we had lots of fun. I want to go back to a camp, but at least for 10 days” 10-year-old Luz tells us.

What 9-year-old Danna loved the most was to sleep on tents and the animals that they saw: “a huge horse, baby chickens, a sheep and a frog”.

Maria Gabriela, the coordinator of the Inclusive Ideas Foundation, one of our partners on this project together with the Liceo Boston school and the Bakongo organization, explains: “the camp aims to join vulnerable communities with people from different contexts to generate an environment of equity where the participants can learn to become agents of change for peace and development of the country”.

At the camp the children learn and work with values such as honesty, respect, team work, peaceful resolution of conflict, empathy and solidarity, among others.

For Pilar, CRAN’s teacher, these experiences are very important for the children because they allow them to share with other children in a setting different from CRAN, and to socialize and have fun as they acquire tools and skills for the rest of their lifes. “The children learn how to use responsibly the resources available to them and to take care of themselves, the others and of mother nature, and they experience a real and concrete sense of inclusion”.

Thanks to your support the children that we care for and protect temporarily in CRAN are allowed to develop their potential while they wait to recover their right to have a family that loves and protects them for ever.

We invite you to continue contributing with our Project and to share it with your friends and family. Thank you very much! :-)

Gracias a tu apoyo, nuestros niños aprenden jugando y divirtiéndose. El mes pasado, durante dos días y una noche, 14 niños de CRAN pudieron vivir la experiencia de un maravilloso campamento.

“Comimos malvaviscos, hicimos pruebas, había un mapa y mi grupo encontró los tesoros, hicimos cartas y unas eran secretas, hicimos flores de papel, nos divertimos muchísimo, quiero volver a un campamento pero de 10 días”, nos cuenta Luz, de 10 años.

A Danna, de 9 años, lo que más le gustó fue dormir en carpas y los animales que vieron: “un caballo grandote, pollitos, una oveja y una rana”.

María Gabriela, coordinadora de proyectos sociales de la Fundación Inclusive Ideas, aliados en la gestión del campamento junto con el Liceo Boston y la organización Bakongo, nos explica que el campamento “busca unir comunidades vulnerables con personas de diferentes contextos para generar un ambiente de equidad en donde los participantes se formen como agentes de cambio para la paz y el desarrollo del país”.

En el campamento, los niños aprenden y trabajan valores como la honestidad, el respeto, el trabajo en equipo, la resolución pacífica de los conflictos, la empatía y solidaridad, entre otros.

Para Pilar, pedagoga de CRAN, estas experiencias son muy importantes para los niños porque les permite compartir con otros niños en espacios por fuera de CRAN, divertirse, socializar, adquirir herramientas y habilidades para la vida.  “Los niños aprenden a usar con responsabilidad los recursos de los que disponen y a cuidar de ellos mismos, de los demás y de la naturaleza, al tiempo que se genera una inclusión social real y concreta”.

Gracias a tu apoyo, los niños que cuidamos y protegemos temporalmente en CRAN pueden desarrollar todo su potencial mientras recuperan su derecho a tener una familia que los ame y los cuide para siempre.

Te invitamos a seguir contribuyendo con nuestro proyecto y a difundirlo con tus amigos y familiares. Muchas gracias :-)

THE BEST OF HIS CLASS/ EL MEJOR DE SU CLASE

THE BEST OF HIS CLASS

Andres is 8 years old. He is very active, likes to explore the world, asks questions about everything he sees, is very warm and loves to share with everybody. He, as well as some of our other children, arrived to the CRAN Foundation with a very complex emotional situation given the circumstances of infringement of his rights that he had experienced.

When he arrived to the CRAN Foundation, the social worker and the teacher assistant registered Andres in the neighbourhood school, bought his school supplies and uniform, and he started grade one. At the beginning it was very hard for him to study and to concentrate during class. His academic results were deficient and he was demotivated and bored.

Every day the teacher assistant and the support group started to work with him to help him develop his capabilities and competencies to reach their full potential by using arts and crafts and specific reading and writing exercises. Pilar, the teacher assistant believes that “help with homework, permanent follow-up with the school, and love and care are fundamental to strengthen children’s cognitive, social and language capabilities”

Currently, Andres has improved considerably and is one of the best of his class. Every afternoon the school bus picks him up and he leaves very happy to learn new things and to spend time with his friends.

Thanks to you and to all the people that have supported our project in Global Giving we have been able cover the cost of transportation, school supplies and extra help in art, corporal expression, sports and crafts to ensure that our children have the tools to achieve their dreams and aspirations in the future.

We invite you to continue contributing with our project and to share information about it with all your friends and family.

Thank you for building with us a better world for all!

 

EL MEJOR DE SU CLASE

Andrés tiene 8 años es muy inquieto, le gusta explorar el mundo, vive preguntando sobre todo lo que ve, es muy cariñoso y le encanta compartir con los demás. Él, al igual que alguno de nuestros niños y niñas, llegó a la Fundación CRAN con una situación emocional muy compleja dadas las circunstancias de vulneración de sus derechos por las que han pasado.

Cuando llegó a la Fundación CRAN la trabajadora social y la pedagoga buscaron para Andrés cupo en un colegio cercano, le compraron el uniforme y los útiles escolares y entró a primero elemental. Al principio le costaba mucho estudiar y concentrarse en clase. Su rendimiento académico era deficiente y estaba desmotivado y aburrido.

Diariamente la pedagoga y el grupo de apoyo empezaron a ayudarle a potencializar sus capacidades y competencias con clases de manualidades y ejercicios de lectoescritura específicos. Pilar la pedagoga asegura que “El apoyo en tareas, el seguimiento permanente con el colegio y el amor y el cuidado son fundamentales para fortalecer en los niños sus habilidades en aprendizajes cognitivos, sociales y del lenguaje.”  

Actualmente, Andrés ha mejorado considerablemente y es uno de los primero de su clase. Todas las tardes lo recoge el bus del colegio y se va a estudiar muy feliz porque va a aprender cosas nuevas y a compartir con sus amigos.

Gracias a ti y a todas las personas que han apoyado nuestro proyecto en GlobalGiving, hemos podido cubrir el transporte,  los útiles escolares, y el refuerzo en arte, en expresión corporal, deportes y manualidades para que nuestros niños y niñas tengan herramientas en el futuro para cumplir sus sueños y aspiraciones.

Te invitamos a seguir contribuyendo con nuestro proyecto y a difundirlo con tus amigos y familiares.


¡Gracias por construir con nosotros un mundo mejor para todos!

LOTS OF LOVE AND CARE / MUCHO AMOR Y CUIDADO

LOTS OF LOVE AND CARE

During this trimester our babies suffered from a viral infection causing them vomit and diarrhea, but it was controlled thanks to your support.

Nurse Delia tells us that “we had to take 4 babies to the emergency department of Suba’s hospital where they were promptly seen and were kept 24 hours for observation.”

Gloria, one of the people that accompany the kids to their medical control appointments tells us that “I have had cases where babies require hospitalization, and one has to be paying attention to the babies all the time. It is not only just taking them to the hospital, but you have to be very attentive to the doctor’s indications and to give the babies lots of love and care because they are very scared and are feeling bad.”

It is the case of Santiago, 4 months old, that arrived to the Foundation with jaundice it had to be hospitalized a short while later because he had bronchitis and anemia. Currently he has to have oxygen permanently, but thanks to the care, the medications and the love that he is receiving he has been recovering.

Martha, one of the helpers says that “Santiago is an adorable baby. He is currently gaining weight and he looks healthier”.

We have been able of manage cases like Santiago in time and in an effective way thanks to you, because with your contribution we can look after the health of all our babies until they recover their right to grow in a family that loves them so that all their dreams become a reality.

We invite you to continue contributing with our project and to share information about it with all your friends and family.

 

MUCHO AMOR Y CUIDADO

Durante este trimestre nuestros bebes sufrieron de una viral de vómito y diarrea la cual fue superada gracias al apoyo de cada uno de ustedes.

La enfermera Delia nos cuenta que “nos tocó llevar a 4 de nuestros bebés a urgencias del hospital de Suba donde fueron atendidos a tiempo y estuvieron en observación durante 24 horas.” 

Gloria una de las personas que acompañan a nuestros niños a los controles médicos nos cuenta que “A mí me han tocado hospitalizaciones y uno tiene que estar muy pendiente de los bebés que acompaña durante todo el tiempo. No solamente es llevarlos sino que hay que estar muy atento a las indicaciones médicas, darles mucho cariño y amor porque ellos están asustados y se sienten mal.”

Es el caso de Santiago de 4 meses que llegó a la Fundación con Ictericia y al poco tiempo  tuvo que ser hospitalizado por bronquiolitis y anemia. Él en este momento tiene que estar con oxígeno permanente pero gracias a los cuidados, los medicamentos y el amor se ha ido recuperando exitosamente.

Martha una de las auxiliares a cargo dice que “Santiago es una ternura de bebé. Él ahora ya está creciendo y su aspecto es más saludable.”

Casos como los de Santiago los hemos podido manejar a tiempo y de manera efectiva gracias a ti, porque con tu contribución podemos velar por la salud de todos nuestros bebés, niños y niñas, hasta que recuperen su derecho a crecer en una familia que los ame para que todos sus sueños se hagan realidad.

Te invitamos a seguir contribuyendo con nuestro proyecto y a difundirlo con tus amigos y familiares.
