Remansito, back to school!

Volunteers handing out school kits!

During March, colleagues, teachers and volunteers from Remansito Community Center assembled complementary school kits for children in the program.

This action is followed by a series of activities and processes in the area of education, such as school support, development of social and educational skills, workshops and meetings with young people, adolescents and children, mothers, fathers and teachers.

The program also includes actions that promote prevention and health care, and the consolidation and strengthening of the Centre as a place of reference for the community, including active participation of children and adolescents, promotion of productive projects for mothers, literacy for youth and adults, among others.

Since 2013 more than 1,300 children and teenagers attend daily to the community center of this town in search of services and opportunities, and we hope you’ll continue to support them during 2016!

Christmas workshops at Remansito

In the first week of December we held two different Christmas workshops at the Remansito Community Center:

We had a wonderful time with the children and teenagers of the Remansito community who came to the workshop; they learned how to make ornaments with recycled materials. They also made a Christmas manger with recycled bottles and a Christmas tree made with old tires, ¡very original! 

In addition to working with children and teenagers, we also work to improve the quality of life of the people from this community, by offering workshops and courses for them. This time we also made a Christmas cooking workshop for moms,  where they learned how to bake a "sweet Chirstmas bread", a typical cake we eat in this festive season. It was a fun afternoon and the sweet bread was delicious.

 

¡Thank you for all you've done to support this cause during 2015! We hope you had a wonderful Christmas and we wish you a 2016 full of great moments.

Working with schools from Remansito

In addition to providing health care and educational support directly to the children that attend the Remansito Community Center, we also work with the schools in the community of Remansito to achieve greater range, bringing them workshops for teachers and play areas for children, among other activities.

During August and September, teachers from the Remansito Community Center visited local schools and led educational games to promote the children’s right to participate.

The first activity was regarding the making of abacuses, a mathematical tool that encourages a child’s performance with mathematical concepts.

Another activity was to make board games with recycled materials and new materials in order to develop math skills, such as calculations, concentration and attention skills. These games encourage free expression, critical thinking, and above all the joy of children during playtime. These board games are mobile, which allows the children to place them in different spaces within the institution when playing, sharing, discovering, and learning.

We count on your generous support towards this project so that we can continue leading workshops and play areas for all the schools in the Remansito community. Thank you!
