The first month of 2011 has been a busy month for the “Children left behind” project. Promoters at the Development Center in Orizabita are learning new techniques to bring to the classroom this year, and IMIFAP-“I want to, I can” is one step closer to opening up the second Center in Los Remedios, Hidalgo!

Returning from the holiday break, the promoters in Orizabita took a refresher training this month. The training also touched on new topics such as violence and bullying in schools that will help them provide the children with even better attention this year. We expect the Center to open its doors again for activities in February.

IMIFAP-“I want to, I can” began training the local promoters in Los Remedios. They improved their life skills and developed tools and knowledge needed to run the new “I want to, I can” Development Center. The promoters are excited to use the interactive didactic techniques they learned in the training to provide the infants and children in their community with stimulating educational experiences to support the children’s integral development.

With the new promoters trained, your donation will help purchase games and materials to supply the new Center. The children of Orizabita and Los Remedios, Hidalgo thank you for your support!


El primer mes del 2011 ha sido uno muy ocupado para el proyecto “Los niños abandonados”. Los facilitadores del Centro de Desarrollo “Yo quiero, yo puedo” han aprendido nuevas técnicas para aplicar con los niños e ¡IMIFAP-“Yo quiero, yo puedo” ha avanzado un paso más hacia el lanzamiento del segundo Centro en Remedios, Hidalgo! 

Los facilitadores en Orizabita regresaron de las vacaciones con mucha energía para tomar un taller de repaso este mes. El taller también abarcó nuevos temas como la violencia y bullying en las escuelas, los cuales les ayudarán para brindar una mejor atención a los niños este año. El Centro abrirá sus puertas de nuevo en febrero.

También durante este período IMIFAP-“Yo quiero, yo puedo” empezó a formar a los nuevos facilitadores en Los Remedios. Mejoraron sus habilidades para la vida y desarrollaron herramientas y conocimientos necesarios para llevar a cabo las actividades con los niños en el Centro. Los promotores están emocionados de utilizar las técnicas didácticas e interactivas que aprendieron en el taller para brindarles a los infantes y niños de su comunidad experiencias educativas estimulantes para su desarrollo integral.

Ya que los talleres de formación se han acabado, ¡tu donativo apoyará la compra de juegos y materiales para abastecer en nuevo Centro! ¡Los niños de Orizabita y Los Remedios, Hidalgo te agradecen tu apoyo!
