San Pedro is a poor village. A lot of children live in poor families. There are only a few activities outside school. So, they often run the risk of entering into crime (theft, drugs, alcohol, …).
A group of teachers, parents and volunteers have set up the project to create a “Casa de la Paz” or House of Peace in San Pedro, specially aimed at the poor children in the village and in neighbouring villages.
The House of Peace wants to be a meeting place, where children can take part in all kinds of activities that stimulate the team spirit, give them the feeling that they belong, strengthen their self-
The activities include sports, music, reading and writing skills, theatre, dance, computing, drawing and painting, as well as helping children with learning difficulties.
The House of Peace also plans to set up a library.
The House of Peace wants to be like a place called home, where there is someone to help them and to listen to them.This should contribute to a better physical and emotional development.
It wants to help the children to solve problems and conflicts in a peaceful way. It wants to help children to better understand their direct environment and the world around it. This way it hopes to give the children a stronger sense of solidarity and social commitment.
The House of Peace relies on the goodwill of volunteers, mainly teachers. The activities of the House of Peace are now organized in the premises of existing schools and other buildings.
To boost the efficiency of the organization and to strengthen the “feeling of home”, the initiators dream about building a separate house. Simple and totally dedicated to the children.
At the moment, the House of Peace especially needs material for the different activities: office material, books, musical instruments, sports gear, material for the upkeep of school building….
