The last months of 2022 were, as usual, full of fun and interesting activities in the Remansito community.
Taking advantage of the Christmas festivities, several courses were held where girls, boys and adolescents, and their families learned to make ornaments to decorate their homes, as is customary this season.
The choir and guitar students who attend the local community center had their closing act of the class period, as well as the traditional visit to the houses of the neighborhood to see the nativity scenes and sing Christmas carols.
In this way, we say goodbye to 2022 and welcome 2023 with plans to continue working and learning together with the community and each Remansito family that joins our projects.
Several families in the Remansito community currently have family gardens in the patios of their homes. This has been possible with the support of the community development program that is implemented from the local community center.
To start their gardens, they received training and a donation of several seeds. In addition, they have the support and advice of experts.
They recently had the opportunity to show and offer their products for sale at the First Family Garden Fair that was held at the Remansito Community Center. Among the harvested products, tomatoes, parsley, green and red peppers, swiss chard, carrots, lettuce, strawberries, etc. were offered.
The Week of Families, which we celebrate during the first fortnight of May, was a beautiful occasion that we took advantage of so that the girls and boys who attend the Early Childhood Care services (API, in Spanish) and other activities carried out in the communitty center of Remansito, in Villa Hayes, and in the surrounding neighborhoods, meet with their families to participate in a fun photo session and games.
This was an excellent opportunity to enjoy quality family time, sharing a different activity with other children and members of the community.
Everything experienced will be reflected in printed photographs that will be given as a special gift and that we hope will forever form part of the beautiful memories of each family.
Like every year, through Remansito's child-focused community development programs, summer camps were held where activities included crafts, including Christmas decorations and decorated face masks, music, games and lots of fun.
In Remansito, the tradition of visiting some community mangers with the children and going through the streets singing Christmas carols to the sound of the guitar was once again fulfilled.
With some images that illustrate how fun the activities were, we want to take the opportunity to greet all those who support us and those who accompany us and wish them wholeheartedly that this year 2022 be full of joy and health.
Families of Remansito are accompanied and supported to prevent violence and contribute to education and food security
During August, various activities were carried out with the active participation of families from the entire Remansito community.
One of them was the 2nd workshop for API Parents (in Spanish API stands for early childhood care) and School Support. The subject of the training was: The importance of play in childhood. Its objective was to develop in the fathers, mothers and close caregivers, skills to promote play, as a right and as a means of learning and resilience.
These meetings were held both in the neighborhood nuclei and in the Community Center.
Another activity carried out was the preparation of meals for the community, something that in Paraguay we know as “olla popular” (soup kitchen), which allowed many families to receive a nutritious lunch plate and to actively participate, strengthening solidarity and community organization.
