By immersing ourselves into the community projects we are in a position to support and helpour partner organizations. The childcare project has been a massive success thus far. After firstly establishing good team work between the interns and I we got to know the Toy Library(Ludoteca) very well. After getting to know all the children, how the Ludoteca functions and allthe Ludotecarias we were then enabled to become helpful members of the Save the Childrenteam and promoters of their teaching methods and ideas. The principle every activity sharesin common is love. We teach love by teaching the importance of values, for example, respect,responsibility or caring for the environment. We have become confident in helping withactivities, daily duties and cleaning tasks at the Ludoteca. Besides the daily running andcleaning of the centre the interns and volunteers have extended themselves to cleaning fans,painting walls and taking activities home to prepare for following classes. This has in turneased the load the Ludotecarias have been carrying of extra tasks they struggle to find thetime to achieve. The Ludotecarias are grateful for the support they are receiving, the childrenare ecstatic to have our company and it is obvious that in time we will be able to offer moreand more support.
