The workshops that teach both parents and children, the importance of traditional games and music as means of learning in a world where teaching relies mostly on technology, have been the backbone for the last two years of the services offered by the Attention Care Foundation.
Training Workshops (origin of the foundation)
The Training Workshops was the first program of the Foundation and was created especially to extend knowledge to parents, teachers, teachers and health professionals of special education children. Since 2013, hundreds of workshops have been offered impacting more than 12,000 people.
Jugar = Aprender
More than a workshop, Jugar = Aprender is a movement that aims to remind adults responsible for the education and care of children, the value of traditional games in the integral development of the children in their care.
La Hora de Juego
La Hora de Juego emphasizes that play is the best tool to reach children and face difficult life circumstances. This initiative allows us to open a space for psycho-emotional recovery in children, especially after natural disasters, such as Hurricane Maria. It is also a prevention vehicle because it helps to work on them resilience and socialization tools.
Through a structured curriculum where the game and music are the protagonists, for an hour every day and for a period of one month, trained professionals, play with the children of a community establishing bonds of trust, working processes of modification of conduct and opening healing spaces.
La Hora de Juego has worked hand in hand with community leaders and the main non-governmental organizations in the country such as Boys & Girls Club; Casa Pueblo; Crearte; C.O.P.I. [Corporación Piñones se integra]; Green Culebra; Idebajo [Iniciativa de Ecodesarrollo de la Bahía de Jobos] y P.E.C.E.S. [Programa de Educación Comunal de Entrega y Servicio].
Jugar = Aprender in a titanic task has made alliances with Head Start, public schools, the Public Housing Administration, municipal administrations and private companies; because they all have in common the desire to help and support the healthy development of childhood.
Through these two projects, the Foundation has impacted more than 5,000 children and approximately 3,000 parents, teachers and caregivers. The Foundation hopes to continue moving forward for all of us, to be able to rebuild Puerto Rico, one child at a time.
