A Summer Sort of School


The doors are open… welcome to the first week of our summertime school centre!

Since I’ve reported last timeabout our school project, we developed a lot and pushed things further, alhamdulillah:

We’ve created a local association that will be in charge of the school.

We’ve found a motivated lovely teacher in accordance to all our needs and together with her we will start official school in September, inchaallah.

We’ve printed a beautiful informative brochure for donors.

We’re supported by and named now as an UNESCO-associated school.

And this week we opened our house for the first time to offer a summertime centre for the kids around here.

We rearranged our home and prepared now two rooms for the school project. During the summer months we offer here crafts, nature expeditions, sport activities, toys, books, a helping hand for learning difficulties, a nourishing atmosphere and a cuddle and a hug for kids from five to thirteen years age.

We take the chance now to make knowledge of the kids, to gain their confidence and the parent’s acceptance and we are looking now for our first official school kids, inchaallah.

Yesterday there’ve been already more than 40 children – much more than we’ve ever expected, alhamdulillah….

Life is busy around here these days, but it is a meaning- and joyful life and last night I felt a bit exhausted but also deeply blessed. When I poured water over my Yogi-tea-bag, I saw these words of wisdom:

“To learn, read.
To know, write.
To master, teach.”

I think I’ll take it as my motto…

Social projects such as this always need financial help and support.
We’ve opened bank accounts in Germany, Switzerland and France and we have different locations in Europe where to collect material which will be brought to Morocco after summer.

So if you are interested to get further information about, to support our school or if you know someone who could help us, please leave a comment or contact me at itto.berber(at)gmail.com

Happy Friday!
