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.
Mitmachen bei Young Euro Classic is aimed at children and teenagers between the ages of 6 and 14 and their families and friends. Particular emphasis will be placed on the diversity of the visitors and participants.
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.
The SARIAS Foundation is giving the gift of mobility in the form of 10 children’s wheelchairs. In collaboration with Kinderhilfe Harambee e.V., these wheelchairs set off on a journey from Frankfurt to Nairobi. Thanks to the tireless commitment of Harambee e.V., the wheelchairs completed their journey and are now helping orphaned children with disabilities.
Ever since the publication of our storybook “The Jackal and Goat’s Little Calf”, storyteller Britta Behrens has recited the story to each of the classes at Bruno Taut Primary School. A total of 450 children received the book as a gift. Today’s readings concluded 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.)
