We are so happy and extremely grateful to announce that knitwear designer Joji Locatelli will be donating 100% of the proceeds of her new knitting pattern forever to Quilmes Community Kindergarten. You can purchase the pattern through the Ravelry platform.
Recently we celebrated our 35 year anniversary since we started our commitment towards children.
We have lived so many things and learned so much with all the families we support through their kids learning stages.
Since the early beginnings in the Parish Room with just a few toys and 15 children we started growing, we incorporated Daycare and a separate building for the Kindergarten. There were some rough times through the economic crisis in 1989/90 and 2001/2002. But also blissful moments and everyday joy on watching kids run happy and well fed and watching once-students bring in their own kids as years went by.
Many families have to endure tough situations. To support them with words and actions can be a great challenge but its proven to be very rewarding.
We feel next to so many warm-hearted people that every day bring their support and strength to help us keep doing our work.
Celebrations are not over yet, we feel grateful and stand united as a team and as a community. To continue our work requires a great constant effort, but we are not alone and even the smallest achievements bring rewards in our path.
