Some summer fun and reflections

By Rocio Rebagliati | International Community Referent

Summer at Colibríes Home has been nothing but fun and engaging. This time of year is always filled with pure joy and energy, which is why we try our best to provide the children with interactive and enriching activities for them to play with their friends while enjoying the perks of the hot weather.

During January and February, we had multiple birthday parties, which are some of the celebrations the kids love the most. Usually, the kids whose birthday falls in the same month can choose the theme and games for that day! Water balloon battle has undoubtedly been the most popular choice. We also emphasize the importance of showing love and care for each other, by giving the birthday kids lots of drawings and greeting cards from all their peers.

In the same way that playing and having fun are crucial for children´s development, reflecting on other pondering topics is just as important. For this reason, we make sure that we can dedicate particular evenings to learning about the importance of national and international days and festivities. World Education Day, on the 24th of January, was a very
significant opportunity to talk about education rights and the process of learning.

Tell me and I´ll forget. Show me and I´ll remember. Involve me and I´ll learn” – Benjamin Franklin.

On the 4th of February, we also honored Cancer Awareness Day. We commemorated the Spanish advocate, Elena Huelva, and tried to connect with her journey and personal battle against this illness. Since the age of 16, she had been a spokeswoman for the prevention of Cancer among the younger generation.

We have a lot more reflections like these ones planned for the month of March, focusing especially on International Women´s Day, on the 8th.

We want to thank you for all your support for this project. It is thanks to you that anything we do at Colibríes Home is possible. We have plenty of plans for the rest of the year and want to invite you to come along for the ride!

Wholeheartedly,

The Mensajeros Family.
