The new Ethical Development Program began on September, in Morelos, Mexico's "La Buena Tierra" school. Children are very happy! They are enthusiastic in learning to meditate. They like to achieve well behaving while being in silence.
Through meditation, children will learn to be calm, to be patient and to think before acting. These will help them to develop self control and other attitudes and skills that will help them to face daily situations with wisdom.
We greatly appreciate all your support!

Improving reading skills
By Maite Esteinou - Team member
Along the last three months, we have focused our activities in reinforcing reading aloud and reading-comprehension abilities. We have seen the enthusiasm children have shown in choosing their books and stories they liked the most and sharing them with their mates. The toy librarians in charge noticed that these kids are improving not only in their reading skills, but also in socializing with others. We are very happy to share these great results with you!
For Mother’s day, children made greeting cards for their moms. They got to spend a whole evening with their moms, they showed them what they had been learning and they had the opportunity to have some quality time with them. It was an amazing mothers day gift.
Also, three days were specially planned for parents to go during a whole afternoon to play with their kids. They seemed very enthusiastic, so we hope we can repeat this activity and have even much more parents here with us.
Thank you for all your support!
Have a nice day,

Developing self confidence in children
By Maite - Team member
Dear friends! How are you!
As many know, there are growing numbers of bullying in younger children, egocentric behaviors, lack of team work and concern for social wellbeing. These topics need to be attended urgently, and that’s why we started this program. It develops the capacity of discernment in children ages 4 to 7 and through which they gain life skills such as empathy, compassion and wisdom. As children understand and use these life skills they will become more aware of their relationship with others, make better assessments and create a solid platform for moral and social values.
We greatly appreciate all your support and look forward to sharing great results from this program soon!
