Our supports: Fornitures of 12.000 stylos, 5.000 notebooks and 1.500 chalks
Number of beneficiaries: 12.000 children
Our stay in Tanaff valley, the beneficiary area that includes a total of 5 municipalities and 80 villages, underlined the absence of proper equipments (pens, chalks and notebooks) for a regular learning and training activity (although schools are appropriately located on the territory). Children are our planet’s actual treasure. Their education will allow the development of knowledges, methods, provide sufficient maturity for new generations, leading to a better future, and build supportive and peaceful societies, based on equality and respect.
That represents our strong motivation on encouraging young students from 7 to 16 years old through donations of necessary equipments for regular learning activities. School bags most of times do not contain pens as well as notebooks, a rarety, appear empty; as unusual as it may seem, even if such items aren’t expensive, these are every-day conditions. Some schools give chalks to children to take notes on their desks, even though they got them erased by the day after. The lack of pens, notebooks and chalks mines the right learning process, setting a deep and wide absence in fundamental right to study.
We have been able to donate, hand by hand, 12.000 pens to an average of 32 schools thanks to the support of the company Stilolinea, developing together this project. Teachers also received 5.000 notebooks and 1.500 chalks. Donation simbolyzed, giving pens child by child, the immediate interest on education and hope for future generations: Children themselves.
It represented one more chance to address children and give them a right idea about the importance of studying, for themselves, their families and nation, more generically for the world development.
Every lesson ended with the quote of Raoul Vecchio: Thanks to my studies I’ve become an architect and engeneer, the major became the major and the president of Senegal today’s running a whole country. Your future depends from your studies, and tomorrow one of you may become the future major, minister or even president of Senegal, but it’s only up to you and your studies!”
The company Stilolinea contributed to the project with the donation of the pens.
