Summer activities for the children of La Carpio
In Costa Rica from December until January, there is a school break for girls and boys, therefore at ILORI we took the opportunity to open a summer space that allows our beneficiaries to participate in activities at Casa ILORI, taking into account that many of these girls and boys generally remain at home during this vacation period. These summer activities are essential for us and have two centerlines.
This year, we focused on carrying out strengthening for schoolchildren left behind in the educational progress, whereby we provided space for a literacy kit delivery to continue with reading stimulation at home through a workshop that every mother received from the Foundation. At the same time, as part of the support in mathematical logic, logical reasoning activities and strengthening multiplication tables were carried out through digital tools, as well financial education, which is a key within the social and economic development of the future generations.
Having mentioned this, soft skills development is very important for us from a gender perspective which is why we felt encourage to execute these summer activities where we held yoga workshops that we frequently do at the foundation as it allows you to exercise the body and mind. We also had filigree workshops and it consist of the art of molding paper, this activity helps to develop fine motor skills. In addition, there were board games that involved cooperation, which allowed us to potentiate the teamwork.
On the other hand, we carried out a castration and animal health campaign aimed to the community in alliance with Costa Rica Guau organization, we also conducted bracelet and break dance workshops. Finally, we had chess workshops in alliance with La Municipalidad de San José.
This is a small summary of what we have done so far this year. And we thank you again for your donation and support to make this possible.
