Children’s dreams made visible in drawings
In celebration of the World Kids Colouring Day, together with the kids we took part in the competition of company Staedtler. The children were asked to draw their thoughts regarding nature. They were free to express themselves and they had no time limits, so they could handle it without any pressure. As a result, we got plenty of colourful, fantastic drawings. Although we didn’t win a price, the children were very happy to have taken part and they had a lot of fun realizing their ideas.
Have a look at some examples of the artworks:

As also in Ecuador distance learning had been imposed it became visible that the children had very varying knowledge of technology. Some already had had some experience with computers and were able to follow the lessons easily, while others had no knowledge at all.
The computer lessons started in April with the aim of teaching the children basic skills and prepare them well for the online lessons so that all the children could take part in class together.

In this time of pandemic and uncertainty, it is so pleasant to see signs of human solidarity.
This could be experienced in February and April at the Fundacion, thanks to the voluntary contribution of the teenage students of the German School in Quito. The students of class 10C were motivated to give love, solidarity, respect and attachment to the children and young people of the Fundacion in the form of pencil cases, letters and chocolate baskets to celebrate Friendship Day and Easter.
The children and young people who visit the Foundation every day have understood that there are people out there who care about them and who appreciate them.
