The illustrated book of fairytales can be obtained free of charge from the SARIAS Foundation since the 10th of October. If you are interested, just send a short email to email@example.com and the book will be sent to you by post.
The coronavirus pandemic will of course affect the upcoming Stiftungswoche with its main theme this year of “Glück heute?” (‘Happiness Today’). In April 2020, it will largely be held online, but will certainly be no less informative.
Following on from the animal tale from Ethiopia, our storybook journey now takes us to China: our Chinese story is called “The Two Melons” and it will constitute the 2nd volume in the series of stories produced by the SARIAS Foundation.
After our storybook “The Jackal and the Goat’s Little Calf” was published, storyteller Britta Behrens narrated the story in every class at the Bruno Taut Grundschule (primary school). A total of 450 children received the book as a gift. Today this storybook was successfully completed with storytelling sessions for Years One and Four.
20th November is #worldchildrensday! For the past 30 years, the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child has protected the right of every boy and girl to be taken seriously and to be involved in the decision-making process. However, children all over the world are still all too often disregarded in decisions that affect their lives.
We are involved! As part of the Berlin Fairy Tale Days, we invite school classes and daycare groups, age 5 - 11. On 14/11 and 15/11 the storyteller Britta Behrens tells the Ethiopian fairytale "The jackal and the goat's little calf" in the yurt of the Neukölln Gardening School. Each child then receives the illustrated book to take home with them. Please arrange your visit in advance by phone on the number 030 - 34 70 94 79 (Märchenland e. V.)
