After two weeks of winter holidays and incredible low temperatures in Argentina during July, our 35 children came back to the programs with lot of happiness. They even received some guests in the workshops, mostly local artists that created with them different art pieces that the children will expose in galleries, schools and local museums.
We have received more support from donors and that's great, we can keep on doing this fantastic action with the community.
Incredible progress in this project, our 35 children has been learning a lot about new media and using them to connect with the world. They have created their own blog that will be public soon, nowadays they are practicing with the functionality and creating day to day content. Also they have been using their brand new digital camaras to tell and show stories of their own reality, which is great. The program has the highest attendance of the whole organization! It is really reducing the digital gap and help children to learn in a different way.
Keep on supporting us and thanks a lot!
The last 3 months has been very exciting for the children and the teachers themselves. The kids made incredible progress, created their own email accounts and started to connect with the world, sending emails to everyone they know. The attendance to the program is the highest of the whole organization, confirming that is really motivating and everyone is interested in being part of it. Our two new teachers have been working with different platforms and tools (games, documentaries, blogs, etc) to tackle different issues of the children's reality, like violence and literacy problems.
We've also added to the program to new 'toys'. Two digital cameras that the kids are bringing to their own place for couple of days and they are encouraged to tell their stories and reality to the public. This is relatevely new and we will see the results soon, but the enthusiasm has been overwhelming.
Thanks to all the supporters of this project, keep on walking next to us!
