PENDULA CHILDREN'S STORE
The children of Pure Hope School are provided with the opportunity to do recycling for six weeks. As remuneration for items they collected they earn “pendulas” (paper money). Items received from donations of food, toiletries, stationary, clothes, toys and sweets are used to create a pop-up shop where the children can spend the money they have earned. A guide assists them with their purchases and they are expected to buy from each station. It is great to see how they try to buy something for each one in their family! In this way the children learn to care for the environment, they learn about basic economic principles, they are empowered to look after themselves and their families and, importantly, they learn that hard work is rewarded, allowing them to experience the joy of independence.
CHILDREN’S HEALTH DAY (WEIGHING AND MEASURING)
A Health Day for children in Woodlane Village will take place in September 2022. On the day the clinic will weigh, measure, immunize, de-worm and test the iron of as many children (under the age of 6) as possible from Woodlane Village. A sponsor supplies a Vitamin A and Iron supplement for all the children on our database on a daily basis and we want as many children as possible to benefit from this. Our goal is to do early identification of young children that are malnourished or stunted.
On the day we need volunteers to help with the weighing and measuring of the children as directed by the dietitian as well as volunteers to prepare the hot dogs for all that attend.
