Time for asking questions

By Laura De Carlo | Fundraiser and Volunteer

To me, the casita means ....
To me, the casita means ....

This time of the year, activities at the casita de los niños are up and running: tutoring for homework, the cafeteria serving two meals per day, sport and outdoor games in the playground, creative workshops, music and drawing lessons, and of course regular health checks.

Still, while working hard as usual, it’s useful sometimes to find the time to stop and change the lens through which we view our daily routine. This is what Chiara, the young woman who has worked 11 months at the casita as a civil servant, has done by asking a bunch of our kids a simple question: “what does the Casita mean to you?”

Many answers came: some were sort of expected, some a bit ungrammatical, some both simple and amazing.

Please find the time to give a look at the picture with the word cloud generated from their answers: here you may find the reason why the casita has to be, why this work has been done so far, why we must keep working.

Many thanks to Chiara for collecting this evidence, many thanks to our kids for reminding us of the whys, many thanks to YOU, dear friends, for working beside us!

For those who prefer a more legible text, the answers are here:

To me the casita means …
