We are happy to tell everybody that HESpace approved our 2013 project! This blog will report the project's follow up and results. We've imported the posts from last year's project's blog to make it easy for everyone do see the whole story from the beginning.

Kids on the map

Nothing better for a kid to learn Geography than to have big maps. These kids now have maps to study, to find themselves in the globe, to learn how to be better citizens!

Endless rain causing delays

It's been quite a while since our last post, but we finally have good news. Our last items of the project are finally being installed: the beautiful rocket and the little house (that came with a weird roof). Causes of delay were: the provider told us the execution was not so easy; when he finally delivered the items, we had to hire a machine to lift the items over the new fence, that was built due to safety reasons. And the rain... We had to wait for the rain to give us a break and allow us to execute this "operation". Anyway, we can finally show everybody the pictures of the new playground toys. As can be seen in the pictures, there is still a slide part to be fixed which is by the brick wall (also new as the old one was substituted).
This picture shows the items outside the new fence.

This one shows the playground with the slider that is still to be fixed.

This one shows the rocket in place.
As soon as the new playground is ready for use, we plan to post pictures of the kids having lots of fun with these toys!

Cotton candy for everybody!

Some may think that the last item for a school should be a cotton candy machine. The thing is that these kids deserve to celebrate special occasions: Independence Day, Easter, Christmas, graduation. Yes, they sure do deserve to fill their often bitter lives with some sugar. And cotton candy definitelly helps filling this need. The school used to spend money renting such item ocasionally. Not any more! Thanks to HeSpace Children's Foundation, our celebrations will cost a bit less, and our money will be kept for other educational needs. We will be posting pictures as other items arrive.

First Acquisitions of our Project

We are happy to let everybody know that we ordered all of the items of our project, and the first of them is already with us: the mini mattresses covers fabric. We will be publishing pictures as items arrive. Most of them had to be ordered from out of Brasília because of the better prices we got, mostly from São Paulo.
