Activity Playbooks to continue learning

Children from Menino Deus receiving the Playbook
Children from Menino Deus receiving the Playbook

One of Vaga Lume's innovations for 2021 was the donation of pedagogical materialfor children who have limited access to educational activities due to the pandemic scenario. The playbooks made by Vaga Lume’s team and illustrated by a local Amazonian artist are filled with activities about local culture and local environment.

Along with the material, the children also received two handmade books produced by the communities with local legends and histories - 'Cobra Grande' (Big Snake) and 'O canto do Jacurutu' (Great horned owl’s singing) - and a kit with school supplies to carry out their activities. Thus, in addition to encouraging children's reading and writing, we also make it possible to strengthen Amazonian culture.

In total, 900 children received the kit from the communities: Menino Deus (Portel, Pará), Damásio (Guimarães, Maranhão), Surumu (Pacaraima, Roraima), Maracatiara (Ouro Preto do Oeste, Rondônia), João Settlement Batista (Castanhal, Pará), Pesqueiro (Soure, Pará), and Perpétuo Socorro (Tefé, Amazonas).

The volunteers who delivered the playbooks report the children's emotion when receiving them, grateful for the material and for the opportunity to continue learning. For many of them, this is one of the few educational activities that they had access to during the pandemic.
