In April our Education Program started. The kids are highly motivated: To begin, we made many games that allowed us to get to know each other! More and more kids are attending our classes, many of them from the last year, but also some new children.
The groups are growing, just like the number of our locations. In 2019 we were able to establish three new centers: one called "Vamos a Andar“ in Barrio 31 and another two in Longchamps and Ciudadela, both located in the Province of Buenos Aires. We always try to spread our programs in new neighborhoods!
Every year we start our work with exams. These exams are provided by one of our partner organizations. The kids have to do an exam in Maths and Spanish, depending on the grade they are in and their age. Based on how kids do in these exams, they are divided into one of our three groups.
It´s wonderful to see kids learning, growing and getting paid off for their efforts!
Like every year, we hope that many children can improve their quality of studies, and we are very grateful to donors like you who make this possible!

The start of the school year is upon us! This week children returned to their classrooms ready to learn.

During January we ran two fundraising events in partnership with Instagram Influencer Dafne Schilling (@dafneschilling). Dafne helped create an amazing yoga event which was a truly positive experience for all who attended! Those who joined the activities of the classes were encouraged to donate school materials in return for attending. The day was full of joy, not only because of the phenomenal classes put on by Dafne but also because of the generosity of those who donated school materials. We were overwhelmed at the kindness of all who attended and amazed at the high quality of materials we received, including backpacks and writing materials such as workbooks and pens.

These simple materials may seem small but make a huge impact to the lives of those children starting school this week. These kind of actions, together with the donations we receive from you through GlobalGiving, are those that improve the quality of educational life of children every day!

Thank you for being an important part of this project!

The program is located in the neighborhood of Flores and is a care center for the elderly during the morning and then in the afternoon, the space transform in a safe place for children.

This program takes place on tuesdays and thursdays, and consists of local and international volunteers helping children with thier education and matters more difficult for them. The children work divided into groups to give them the most individualized attention possible, taking into account the age range and knowledge.

We work two major subjects, language and mathematics through the program books. Children have a snack time and a work time so volunteers can talk with them and let them express feelings and frustrations that sometimes with the routine of the school can be overlooked.

At the beginning you are only a source of knowledge or support for the kids but as time goes by, you are entering little by little into their life and bonding with them. After having gone through projects like these you reinforce even more the idea that children needs to be protected.

Whatever are the different situations and realities they have to live in their homes every day, when you are with them, you become a child defender. It's at that moment when you really realize your work there, and beyond the academic concepts you can transmit to them, you don't stop being a reference and a guide that helps them in their social process.

In this way, by helping the children you realize the importance of volunteering and begin to understand there are people who really need your help and commitment.

We are developing educational strengthening workshops in Villa 31 in the city of Buenos Aires.

The workshops began with the leveling test, which is a simple test to identify at what level of knowledge each child is and to provide advice that responds to their needs and learning.

All Messengers of Peace workshops seek to design and implement a support methodology that is adapted to the educational, social and emotional realities of children and adolescents.

Thanks to the help of our donors, more than 100 children from Villa 31 can receive this constant support and acquire educational tools that allow them to learn, develop and feel comfortable studying.
