October 12th is Children's Day in Brazil, and as every year since SINAL's inception, we will host children from the local community as well as from the Julio Otoni Community Center, a partner organization in a favela in Rio. This coming Friday 11th, we will receive 30 children and are preparing the environmental learning journey! including an educational trail to a spring, a home-sourced desserts workshop with our ecochef, and a wildlife animal protection activity with a partner biodiversity protection NGO!
As we have had presence for 8 years in the valley, we and our partners have been able to see several indicators of biodiversity coming back. We are very happy and conscious that it is now time to double our efforts offering a safe, fun and educational approach to nature to the children that we hope will grow up to be its stewards.
We will post photos and videos of the event, so stay tuned to our social media @sinaldovale! In the meantime, we cannot be more grateful for the support of our donors, you continue to enable us to show in a fun way, how it is important to care for nature as she cares for us!
Here is a photo of a previous learning journey with our friend Recyclon!
