On december 16th the Tuendelee house had the opportunity to share a lovely afternoon with some friends of a company which has long been one of our sponsors. All of their employees have once again opened the doors of their offices to give our children an afternoon of happiness, full of games and… bubbles!

 

This year, infact, waiting for the kids, the moms and our operators, there was Zelda, an amazing professional who teached our kids to play with simple things like water and soap, showing them how to make big bubbles as well as small ones, letting them also enter inside one and watch the world through that thin and fragile wall of water. The smiles, the huggs and also the small fights the kids had during all the show, allowed the moms to watch at the show with eyes full of wonder and, once in a while, free of the suffering and pain of their condition, eyes in which all the worries were replaced by the true joy and curiosity of watching their kids trying to make colorful bubbles.

 

But our sponsor generosity didn’t stop there. They also granted our kids their wishes, gifting each one of them the toys they asked for Christmas! You can’t immagine the joy on their faces, the warm smiles they showed us were the biggest gift we could ask for.

 

We wanna thank our sponsor and all of you, our amazing friends and supporters, with your donation, you really make the difference and help us welcome and support families which are struggling both economically and socially. Share our project page with your friends and family. Together we can give theese families the future they're  fighting for.

Dear friend,

Here’s some updates for you, regarding our social housing project in Fondazione Tuendelee Onlus.

 

In September, Tuendelee celebrated its first ten years! To make the occasion, the whole centre held an open house event. Kids running around, tasty Italian food, sensory path and workshops, and so many wonderful people!

But the highlight of the day were the testimonials coming from some of the families which took part of the social housing project in the past. How moving was to sense their gratitude and appreciation!

 

What else? Well… it’s been a period full of goodbyes at Tuendelee. One of our long-time family units has finally taken flight, leaving the nest! In fact, the parents achieved job stability, which gave the family self-sufficiency as well as the chance to find housing in an autonomous way.

Hence, we had to say goodbye to this wonderful family, which has been filling our rooms with joy, happines and warmness, straight from Africa.

 

Tuendelee is a very dynamic reality, and after this bittersweet farewell, the social housing project is already welcoming two new families. After rough sea and choppy waters, they have landed at Tuendelee, and we all look forward to welcome them and give them a chance for rebirth.

 

With a donation, you can make the difference and help us welcome and support families which are struggling both economically and socially. You can do it here

Are you already overwhelmed with good news?!

As you may have noticed, our Social Housing project have achieved lots of results and hosted more and more women in hardships.

Let’s so meet your curiosity with a new brand story – on May, a very young Nigerian mum entered the program with her little sweet daughter.

Letting back her past as a victim of human trafficking, she has now the opportunity to guarantee a brightful future to her daughter and she’s not going to throw it away.

For the first two months from her welcoming, our operators have assessed her parenting skills and have come to the conclusion that through Social Housing she’ll finally acquire all the necessary capabilities to become an autonomous and strong mum and woman. The pathway to these achievements may be long and tortuous, but along with her outlook on life changing, she’ll finally be proud of her self!

She’s really grateful of this opportunity and willing to do her best – anything is easier when you’re surrounded by loving and caring educators who are like friends.

She’s not alone! We’re all taking this trip together!

While this young mum has just started her journey, another mother is about to complete it: she’s now ready to independently cope with the outside world and any day-to-day difficulty.

These are only two example of what YOU have contributed to managed so far!

Thank you very much from the bottom of our heart!

First of all, we would like to thank you all for the great support you gave us during the Little by Little campaign. Thanks to your commitment, the result has been even greater than we expected!

Our families have spent an April full of surprises and news: a family in fact greets the Tuendelee structure in order to follow a path in complete autonomy: obviously, the operators and volunteers of Tuendelee have tried, where possible, to give their own small /big contribution by putting a table at your disposal; who some chairs, who thought to check if the washing machine of the new apartment was working, ready to repair it in the case.

New families instead enter the difficult and picturesque world of Social Housing: one of these comes from the CO-HOming project because it has been able to take some steps towards a new parenting dimension, aware that parenting does not only mean giving birth to a child but also knowing how to see them grow and learn interesting things about life every day.

Speaking of learning, the boys of the afterschool learned how our solar system is and how the human body, similar to the planets, gravitates around some concepts like "oxygen" "hydrogen" and other molecules of the chemistry of basis. There is still a way to go for them too!

We have great news from our Social Housing project! Two new families have been welcomed in a renovated apartment, which has now three bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen, a bathroom, a laundry room and a space entirely dedicated to play. The apartment is dedicated to lone-parent households living in a difficult economic and social situation, in particular mothers with their little children. The activity started in December, when the first family was welcomed. Today two moms with their two little daughters live in the apartment!

The welcomed families are being monitored by our specialized education staff, together with two volunteers, who are helping mothers to manage their everyday activities.

Through this new activity of co-homing, together with the welcomed families, we are willing to promote the value of cohabitation, which means for us a cooperative lifestyle focused on mutual support. In our opinion, this practice improves the quality of life, but above all it shows that smiling is not an extraordinary fact but an everyday experience!

We would like to take this occasion to thank you all once again, for the huge and fundamental support you give us every day! For this, we couldn’t be more grateful!
