While at home in self-quarantine, we stay active

During the pandemic, new and different projects were born in Clara Luna. Our “online” programs on Facebook are popular in the virtual community. As the days go by, we have been discovering some characteristics of the platform. This discovery has improved our work in each transmission, allowing us to find a new technology tool for the enjoyment of books and stories.

 

Among the highlights of the quarantine, we can mention the participation of ex-volunteers who have sent greeting videos to the program's children giving recommendations on how to avoid COVID-19 infections and reinforcing sanitary biosafety measures.

 

Furthermore, we have been working our online sessions according to the authors of books; we have read about 35 books of both Oliver Jeffers and Anthony Browne. Children have shown interest in improving the challenges they are going through by actively participating in contests, which are: "The Reading Challenge, The Challenge for the Environment, and The Challenge of the Game of Shapes." In the same manner, "children at home” registered high participation; they shared photos of their quarantined activities like reading, cooking, doing crafts, or even doing activities to take care of planet earth.

 

Another organization method was the reading projects, such as the book "The Little Prince" by Antonie de Saint-Exupéri, carried out for the Children's Club, with the collaboration of friends and allies of the Red de Children's and Youth Literature of which Clara Luna is a part.

 

In short, it has been a time of forced transformation; and at the same time, it has been a very enriching time for the Clara Luna community. We continue forward, nothing stops us, although for now, we say goodbye to some projects that had their time and their usefulness. Soon, we will be publishing new projects that allow us a reactivation more consistent and convenient to the new biosecurity measures. We appreciate the support received; without the help, it would not be possible to continue.

 

Thank you for everything, and see you later!

Final report of this project

Hola a todos,

It has been a while since our last report, this is the final report of this project that has been active since April 2017, in these three years it has been rewarding to receive your support, which allowed us to keep working for our community.

In this opportunity, I would like to share the latest update until the first quarter of 2020, before the health and social measures to reduce the Coronavirus.

On January, our Club de Niños had rhymed stories of Dr. Seuss, such as "Green Eggs and Ham", "The Lorax", "Yertle the Turtle", "Gertrude McFuzz", and "The Big Brag".

On February, the Club had Women of Science Month, including Marie Curie, Jane Goodall, May-Brit Moser, and Vera Rubin, the children made the choice of the "Clara Luna Science Woman 2020" and the winner was Jane Goodall by a majority vote.

On March, before unexpectedly saying goodbye to volunteers and going into quarantine and social distancing, we were preparing for our annual Olympics Games working on stories of cooperation, fair play and teamwork with "Willy the Wizard" by Anthony Browne, and "Hippos can swim"  by Pablo Bernasconi, and practicing the choreography that a group of children would present at the Olympics, with the song "Soy yo" by the band Bomba Estéreo. So, this is how we ended our face-to-face activities.

During lockdown period, we have been working on post-pandemic projects, that's why in a few more days we will be posting two new projects relate to "New Normality in Clara Luna" and the "Clara Luna's Community Library".

Thanks again for your great support!

Project Update

Dear donors, 

We are writing you to explain why we need to discontinue our project "Language Enrichment in a Nurturing Environment".

The funding we received was not sufficient to fund the programming. We were only able to achieve one monthly donor and the funds will be diverted to other existing, more successful projects.

In addition, due to the COVID pandemic crisis, our activities are completely stopped while we cannot host activities for the time being. Thank you for your understanding!

We share some pictures of our regular work in Canoa, picture 1: December 2019, picture 2: December 2019, picture 3: February 2020.
