We have done it! Over 650 children from all over Catalonia will participate in the educational solidarity Helping Hands Project throughout 2015. It will connect more than 950 children from around the world and they will do it in several languages: English

5000 kilometres of emotions

 

Helping Hands is a multilingual educational solidarity Project (Catalan – Spanish – English – French and the language of the other countries participating) that aims to bring other realities to children through motivating and wonderful experiences. It is possible to travel very far with hope and excitement, of which our children are overflowing. We can do it, let’s go for it!

 

The Project, led by ILERI has the support of several NGO’s that help to transport the material made by Catalan children to other children from different parts of the world. The Project was initially developed in five schools but the goal is to expand to many more throughout 2016. Through these school the hope of 650 Catalan children will be carried to over 300 children around the world. 

 

THE WANTS OF THE HEART: "I ALSO WANT TO MAKE THEM HAPPY" 

It all began in January 2015 at the Primary school Miquel Martí i Pol in Sabadell. Over 120 children from different clases designed and produced handmade notebooks. Notebooks filled with love and emotions presented in English, French, Spanish and Catalan: each notebook contains a photo of its maker and hand drawn pictures of different aspects of the childrens daily lives. The notebooks were given to the children of the Batine Pimary School in Thionk Essyl (Senegal) on the 30th January, with one promise: Catalonia sends notebooks filled with love, what can you give? This solidarity feedback motivated the Senegalese children to create a wonderful cloth painting and to send back their notebooks in answer to the children that had sent them. The Batine school principal told the children they didn’t have to send the notebooks back, but one of the children replied, “They have made me very happy and I want to make them happy”.  

The notebooks have come back and have left again, and with those new notebooks made by the children from the Joan Sanpera i Torrás school in Les Franqueses del Vallès. Where to? A children´s hospital in Gambo Ethiopia, where Iñaki Alegria, a Catalan pediatrician Works, a doctor who does not believe in impossibilities. The notebooks are filled with joy, hope and anticipation. Well done to all of our participants!
