Tag Archives: Thank you

With unforgettable laughter…

…we said goodbye to the annual holiday. We’re grateful to have spent so many cheerful moments with the social-circus “Circlosión de Carcajadas” from Madrid – we all cried for joy and gleamed with
pleasure. This wonderful circus-team travels around the globe and dedicates their work to embellish the life of deprived children and conjure a smile on their faces. Never have I ever seen our children and madrinas burst out in such hearty laughter. I am sure this was an unforgettable experience for our children and they can always look back joyfully on this event. Additionally I was surprised, that our children didn’t miss the obligatory Piñata, which usually plays an important part in Nicaraguan parties. That is incredible and for this success the “Circlosión de Carcajadas” deserves a special
award. And I am sure that in the following weeks this event is everything the children will talk about.
But these were not all the surprises of that day. The children from Sabaneta came by foot to Tamarindo, when suddenly a woman stopped her car to ask the children who they were and where they were going. A few hours later she knocked on our door holding three bags filled with new shoes
for our children. We later learned that her name is Jessina and she is the owner of a shoe factory in Granada. She said: „ When I saw them walking down the street I thought that they are probably
children from deprived families that’s why I stopped my car”.
I am totally overwhelmed! A simple THANK YOU just seems insufficient, but right now it’s all I can give. On that note I send a gigantic hug and loads of kisses to the “Circlosión de Carcajadas” and Jessina. Thank you for that unforgettable day!

Batteries well charged…

…we are complete and with a good mood, because until 5 of February we will still enjoy scholar vacations of our children.
Thanks to our faithful donors we have could bought 12 computers, to finally our girls and boys from LOS GUSANITOS sabaneta can take advantage of important instrument of computing in the education.
Since February 2018, 35 of our 40 girls and boys from tamarindo, they will find in scholar ages. An urgent measure, was extend the educational furniture that we could made. it was urgent to extend our computing room, two years ago have to hold, we had to educated very tight each other. Now it shine with 16 chairs instead of 10 as in last years.
Another need was the educational space of our girls and boys from kindergarten, that all together are 12 at Tamarindo. So, we have create their own space were before was” the movie theater” painted and equipped with an environment adapted to their needs. In that way they can take the time to their educational games in tranquility and do the homework that they have to bring to school.
Still there is too much to do, because we are missing the last furniture, here and there are missing happy murals, etc, etc, etc… as every year we have to go to Managua city to buy lot of scholar books, notebooks, scholar material and educational toys for our 60 kids in scholar ages. But as I said:  we have the batteries well charged, thanks to our donors we have the money to buy the necessary and we have the support of our biggest girls that help us where they can. So, our small paradise little by little shine in new clothes.
I hope that you also have start the year with enough energy and optimism that lasts until December.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

After the Christmas season we made lot of manual arts and small walks with our kids, time flew away. So, we enjoy to the fullest the last day before the big annual vacations that once more we have enjoyed while we have play, dance and sing with our children. Of course, we did not miss our legendary Christmas food, baked chicken with rice, salad and soda until burst. Even that we finally know the depth of their stomachs ;-). They could not standing anymore, they looked at the dessert with regret and could eat more, but their tummies could not standing. Each kid went back home with a little tree made by themselves with the enthusiasm that finally they had a tree to illuminate the Christmas days in their houses. The time to say goodbye has come so fast, our children went back home with a happy side to being with us and in other side with tears, wishing stay and not leave.
We take the time, like every year, to make the big cleaning of our two Homes and of course, at the end of everything we take a rest for two weeks.  With the batteries well charged, we will going to receive to our kids on January 8 of 2018.
Wishing you a Christmas from all our hearts that in your homes do not miss the peacefulness, food and wishes to share between those people that are important for each one of you. A million thank you to all those people that support us in one way or another, to make that our girls and boys have a second Home.
With some last impressions before Christmas we wish you

A very special birthday

The past 8th of September of 2017 was a day full of emotions, for that reason is difficult explain in words what I felt. My madrinas spend their time and skills to prepare a lot of drawings, gifts, poems, dances and funnies activities with our children. All this work express the big affection and love, so all my feelings were overwhelmed. I I don’t understand how I deserve all this things and I don’t know how to give them back al the affection that they gave me in this special day.
Celebrated my birthday under the same roof with all my 70 children, all the madrinas, was the really big present of the day! Thanks to you I went to bed and once again a big smile was put on my face. I felt like I was in the clouds, having a shower of pure happiness about the uncountable feelings and surprises of the day. Thank you-thank you-thank you and once again THANK YOU!
