Working in the children’s rights week, the Pícaros School’s team thought: “what better way to teach our little kids about the children’s rights than to show them the reality of other children anywhere in the world? Why our little children were not going to contribute in the sense that we are all equal? At that time we came up with the idea of collaborate with Afrikable through our school.

Cuento 'UN GRAN CAMBIO'To show our little ones the world’s reality, we began with a project presentation video where they could watch the world’s children. We keep going with a storyteller about Maka’s story through “A BIG CHANGE” story tale.

Been so excited with Maka’s story ! Three, two, one …. Let us get the ball rolling! Shoes out, socks out and to paint their foots to create elephants, giraffes, lions, tigers … they were excited with Africa so we made a wall with everyone helps.

But still we could do more things that Maka taught us, so we decided to create necklaces as the Massai’s women do it, full with litlle balls and a lot of colours! Ahh, I forgot, and we made them in the floor, as we know that they do it.

And finally, we will tell you that we also learned a little Swahili, now every morning the children enter the school saying JAMBO and they smile and dance when it sounds the song “Jambo Bwana”.

This is just the beginning, we will colaborate with Afrikable during all the scholar course, because we believe that...

EVERYTHING THAT YOU GIVE TO THE CHILDREN, THE CHILDREN WILL GIVE IT TO THE SOCIETY

Dawn and you already feel that it is a special day, like every day here, but today with a different touch, 9 of our children graduate and in January they will go to primary school. To celebrate, the women of Afrikable have dressed in yellow or blue to fill this moment with colour and joy.

It's impossible not to be proud, but it's also a chain feeling. This event is due to the work opportunities that Afrikable gives women, to the desire to fight and get ahead of these super moms, thus giving an education to their children, through the teachers and the important role they play here and these 9 nerds wanting to continue learning and knowing beyond what is made in the streets of Lamu.

Today is a good day to dedicate a special word to Madame Grace and Madame Joyce, the two teachers of Afrikable, their work here is impeccable and they start and end the day with a smile, although it is hard to believe it has not been easy to find teachers who don't hit children, respect them, motivate them and inspire them hope.

It is almost impossible to describe the roller coaster of emotions you have on this day. I will forever be grateful to Afrikable for every second on this project.
