Education (7)

Our teachers and volunteers always come up with new ideas in classes on what is interesting for children. Today was a needlework lesson! Often, children have to wear well-worn clothes that quickly tears. So they wear duds. Today we taught kids to sew buttons on and sew holes! Of course, it is difficult to learn any child from the first time, but we will continue to learn how to do it together. The guys will be able to repair their clothes themselves and not wait for the mother to do it.
We together with the children were drawing using paints yesterday! Oh, how problematic it is while drawing putting sheets of paper on benches, when the wind blows away your sheet if you get distracted for a moment, and it’s typical of children to do it quite often. Besides, considering that children use paints only for the second time in their lives, we had to explain the particularities and rules of using paints and brushes that seem obvious to us, but not to children who see them for the second time. Moreover, we did not just draw for fun, we participate in the drawing competition held in Bryansk. And the topic of our drawings is "Football Championship" and "My Family". Tomorrow we will continue to draw, but we will take other topics! Thanks to Larissa Drakina for a possibility of participating in this contest, and the opportunity to win prizes. In our plans, there is a construction of a school for poor children in Malindi. ✅We are raising funds to build a school using the Boomstarter crowdfunding platform❤ ✅a card of the Sberbank Bank of Russia: 4276 1340 0294 3682 .. ..
This time I had puzzles with me. At some point I was afraid that someone will be run down in this jostle. I had to raise my voice. A little. At boys. Now I am 1000% sure - children didn't see toys. Without my help they were not able to put together puzzles for 35 pieces. So how to go to Africa without bags of differnet goods after what we have seen? (:

New school boards!

Written by
Education in Kenya is not free. It’s a good business for its owners and a huge problem for the poor. In this business the competitors are being got rid of by means of normative documents, regulating the educational process and by means of requirements to a school building. For the moment we do not meet the requirements completely and do it at our own risk. If we give up we’ll leave the children with no chance for a better future. Not having permanent sponsors and making this project with my own efforts I only dream of raising funds and building a normal clean school with school-desks, school-boards, concrete floor ( instead of dirt one) and to forget forever how difficult it was to start all this. In September we launched a crowd funding project for the school building, however, we managed to raise only 3% of the money we need and we desperately need your help. Our group in VK has already 2400 friends and if each of you send at least 100 rubles, we’ll build one third of the school! If you want to help us to build the school --> And for now we’re trying to do our best with all we have. For the beginning of a new academic year we prepared 5 school boards. Now we are dreaming of getting school-desks or at least some benches since making school-desks appeared to be so expensive. The price was 1500$ Of course it would have been better to buy everything after the end of school construction, but how can we look calmly at children sitting on the floor! Instead of table, they are writing on each other’s backs. If you want to help us feeding or dressing children or help to develop the project: 1) card of Sberbank of Russia: 4276 1340 0294 3682 2) card of Belarusbank: 4255 1900 5798 6526 valid 08/20 3) money transfer by means of Money Gram or Western Union to the city of Malindi, the country of Kenya addressed to Dzianis Laptseikin

The education here is worth its weight in gold and everybody dreams of becoming educated. This is their only chance and survive and escape the streets.
