Help new little butterflies!

After the great results of last year, the project has not stopped, but another group of 24 children and teenagers between 6 and 14 years, who have suffered violence, have started group psychological therapy and are receiving first  health, social and legal assistance. As foreseen by the program, some meetings were also held with the parents of the abused children: this involvement is fundamental for recovery and to prevent the violence from happening again. The support offered also makes it possible to improve the family bond in general and the life context not only of the young victims, but also of their brothers or sisters.
To facilitate the recovery process, the group witnessed the screening of a film aimed at overcoming the trauma suffered.
If the psycho-socio-health improvement of the children taken care of is the primary result, the ultimate goal is however to counter the phenomenon of violence against minors and reduce, year after year, the number of abused children. Precisely for this reason, also this year special attention will be paid to prevention and awareness-raising activities, with seminars, events and training sessions on the dramatic theme.
Confident of being able to improve our help in favor of this important project, we thank you for the contribution you give us every day and for the precious support received during the Little by Little campaign: in a few days we managed to raise almost $ 700!
Waiting to receive news from Flavio and Luciana, our Aleimar managers who will be leaving for Manaus next week, thank you very much from our little butterflies!

Great satisfaction!

Sara, our volunteer referent, has just returned from the monitoring trip to India and here is the exciting story of what she lived!

"This is the third year that I go to India to monitor the projects that Aleimar supports, but each time the trip can be a different and equally wonderful experience in this country that is impossible not to fall in love! The Indian people have had to overcome another difficult year from the political point of view and we hope that with the new elections that will be held in April 2019 the situation will become more peaceful again, especially for the humanitarian organizations that collaborate with us in this mission.

After visiting the children supported in Mumbai, in the middle of the week I moved to the south, in Tamilnadu, in the Nagercoil area to meet our local referent, John Upalt, and also to monitor the projects of the Mother Theresa Social Service Organization. Like every year I met the women of computer science and tailoring courses: with great enthusiasm and gratitude the girls organized a colorful welcome party during which I had the opportunity to sign and deliver 30 diplomas to the women who concluded with successful training! As evidence of how these courses are fundamental for these women, we discovered that the new computer science teacher is one of the girls who graduated last year, while another opened her own tailoring shop!

It's incredible and exciting to see and feel the joy of many girls who live this project as an opportunity, not only to learn useful skills to enter the world of work, but also to give themselves a chance for personal and social redemption ".

The words and the enthusiasm of Sara give us the charge to help more and more this people and to do it we know we can count on you: last week, thanks to the Little by Little campaign, we have collected almost $ 400! For many it could be a small amount, but for these girls it can really make a difference!

Casa Italia needs your help!

Today we would like to address to you a very important call: the children of Casa Italia need your help!

Casa Italia needs to pay the school fees for the next semester for 13 children, who otherwise won’t be able to finish the school year. Our volunteer Valentina is visiting Casa Italia at the beginning of May and she will bring there the money. For this reason we need your help to raise 1000 $ as soon as possible!

Coffee Beans is taking part into the Little By Little Campaign, promoted by GlobalGiving. This means that each donation up to 50$ will be increased by 50%, thanks to a GlobalGiving special bonus.

If you donate to Coffee Beans by Tuesday 11 April, your donation is even more worthy!

This is the best occasion to help Casa Italia meet this challenge: to raise 1000$ by the end of April, to guarantee school to these children.

Thanks for the support you have been giving to us. We hope you will continue your generous commitment because together we can achieve many great goals!
