Gandang gabi sa inyong lahat,
Thank you to all the ones who came this week.
Here are some updates: In the office, the team, facilitators and some friends, have chosen the arts and crafts workshops, tested them and made one or two samples.
Another part of our week has been to continue being in contact with persons coming or wishing to share a workshop, who learned about the Festival of Learning through Facebook, Couchsurfing, Hands On Manila, or different personal contacts of ATD friends.
So far, to make a summary, among the persons we know will come and share a workshop, there are:
-A long time ATD friend who will come one day in Hilum 7-9years old and three days in Tulay with the youth.
-Grace with storytelling and puppet making (?) in North Cemetery
-Two police officers, one day in Hilum, 10-12yo
-Museo Pambata, one day in Hilum and Tulay, 7-9yo
-Ryan, a biologist teacher who will show experiments
-Joanne, who will show and have children 3-6yo experience grooming (washing hand, poney tail...)
-Theater/dance group for three days in NC, 7-9, 10-12, 12-15, 15+ yo
Still has to be confirmed but interested, some doctor students, a chemist, a storyteller, a nurse, a person who loves to make jewelry with paper mache, a dentist, an artist (which ‘sort’ we don’t know yet...:)
There are also different persons who wish to simply come and help facilitate what we will be doing.
Next week we will buy some material (donations welcome), put them in bags, label them a bit like this: “Hilum April 07, 3-6yo” – “Hilum April 07, 7-9yo” – “Hilum April 07, 10-12yo”.
If I count well, for Hilum and Tulay, the two first communities, it means we will prepare at least 18 bags.......
Wishing to help? Great time with bags all over the place!
We will also finalize some contacts, exchanges.
See you and hear from you soon.
