The children of the Fundación Niños de Guarátaro have had many activities during these months in which they have enjoyed and learned. One of the most important milestones in Honduras is the Fiestas Patrias to commemorate the 202 years of independence of the country and the children participated in a parade dedicated to the flora, fauna and protected areas, as well as national identity, a very important aspect in the formation of the children to bring them closer to the culture of Honduras.
Another of the activities of these months has been the celebration of Día de la Raza, which commemorates the arrival of Columbus to the Americas and the encounter of the two worlds and where the children learned more about this history and celebrate the date with drawings that reflect the Honduran roots.
Last but not least, thanks to the Universidad Pedagógica Nacional Francisco Morazón, last October we held a math Olympiad where the children were able to practice and enjoy playing with numbers.
Very active months at Fundacion Ninos de Guarataro
By Fatima | Volunteer
These past months we have had many activities at the Fundación Niños de Guarataro. We started with the visit of part of the team from Oye Honduras, an organization that supports young people in Honduras and seeks to empower them and transform their lives, their families and communities. Thank you for the visit and many successess!
The three educational centers of the Foundation participated in the parade in the village of Arena Blanda regarding the Environment Day motivating environmental awareness and respect for nature by our kids. And on Earth Day, we carried out ecological awareness activities with the children.
We have also started the soccer season with training and first matches, a team formed by players of different ages.
Finally, we have also carried out activities with families such as the day of coexistence by the sea that has allowed us to enjoy, disconnect and unite even more, the development workshop for women, where we had promoted entrepreneurship or the celebration of Mother's Day.
Greetings from Honduras! We are very glad to tell you that a few days ago we finished a complete year-long teacher training course in the Montessori method. It was held with the support of some entities and organizations
As you may know this educational method is based on experiential learning. This makes it easier for the teachers in our centers to extend the children's knowledge to very practical aspects. The cultivation of a small vegetable garden that we have created with them allows them to integrate knowledge about nutrition, health, cooking, ... Involving families in activities of this kind makes this knowledge have a positive impact on the whole community. That is why we are so happy about the possibility of training our teachers.
Thank you very much for continuing to support our educational project which, as you can see, does not only mean supporting the children but also allows us to amplify the help to many more people!
