Update from Haiti + International Writing Contest

Hello! 

We at PEN PAPER PEACE e.V. have been full of activities and ideas in the first half of the year! A lot has happened in our Schools for Haiti project: 

School activity at St. Emma and St. Nicolas 

We are proud and happy to inform you that our two elementary schools St. Emma and St. Nicolas are still open for about 600 students! 

Since August 2020, the schools have been running without interruption under a strict hygiene concept. Thanks to your donations, the students are able to experience a bit of everyday life and stability in times of crisis and to catch up on the material they have missed during the lockdown. With your active support, the school is kept running, teachers' salaries are paid and the school's operational costs are covered.

We need your continued support to ensure the future existence of the schools. Thank you for your donation!

 

The international writing competition goes into a new round

Together with the Eckenroth Foundation, we are again inviting children and young people to take part in our international writing competition in 2021. With our topics, we want to inspire young people to look beyond their "borders". Children and young people from Germany, Italy, Haiti, Honduras and Namibia can take part. Last year, a German-Haitian writing competition was already held in cooperation with the Eckenroth Foundation under the theme "My dream for the future". Unfortunately, due to Corona, the competition in Haiti had to be cancelled. In Germany, however, it was a huge success. Now we are looking forward to all the texts that students will write this year. The deadline for this year's competition is June 30. You can find all further information and conditions of participation here: https://t1p.de/jc34

The workshops are open!

Hello!

We at PEN PAPER PEACE e.V. have been full of activities and ideas in the first half of the year! A lot has happened in our project Talleres (Spanish for “workshops”):

The Talleres are open!

There is good news: The doors of the "Talleres" are open again since the beginning of March 2021! Thus, the training program for young people from socioeconomically challenged families will finally continue. Due to the Corona pandemic, the premises were closed for many months and thus the training program was also put on hold. 

Now, 6 of the workshops have been open again for a good 3 months, a huge success! Due to Covid-19 restrictions it is not yet possible to welcome all students at once, but a huge portion of the kids can already participate in the professional programming. We are very happy that the young people are learning and working in the Talleres again. 

Looking forward to 2022 we are optimistic that all workshops will open again and at full capacity. Help us to support the project in the future!

New workshop

Not only are most of the workshops open again, there also is a new workshop launching: automotive painting. In addition to the existing range like cosmetics, tailoring or carpentry, young people can now train in a further specialty that helps them to create an independent future.

Renovations at Pasos Pequenitos

Hello!

We at PEN PAPER PEACE e.V. have been full of activities and ideas in the first half of the year! A lot has happened in our project Pasos Pequeñitos (Spanish for “small steps”):

Reopening in July 

After more than a year of closure due to the Corona pandemic, the time has finally come: 

We are happy to announce that the Pasos Pequeñitos daycare center, which we support with your help, will reopen in July.

The daycare center has found new rooms and is currently being renovated and remodeled. Thanks to your donations it is possible to create a child-friendly place for the children to learn and play. Thus, the single mothers can put their little loved ones in care in a stimulating and positive environment while dedicating themselves to study for a better future for themselves and their children. 

All the news from "Pasos Pequeñitos" was shared at our project presentation on International Women's Day. If you did not attend the presentation, you can find the highlights of the presentation in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JgjfGSaiY-s&feature=youtu.be 

New pedagogical concept in the kindergarten

There is even more news: Pasos Pequeñitos will not only reopen in a new location, but also with a new concept. In the future, the kindergarten will be pedagogically oriented according to the Montessori concept. The Montessori concept is strongly based on the self-determined learning of the children. Thanks to your donations we support the kindergarten to get all the necessary wooden toys. 

 We are very happy about the developments and look forward to the reopening of the daycare center!
