CHILDREN's DAY

November 20: A Most Special Day for Children Everywhere

November 20 is Universal Children’s Day, a day to celebrate the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. This day provides an excellent opportunity for all of us to strengthen our commitment to build a better world -  a world in which the best interests of children are the primary concern of all.  

We are pleased to commemorate Children's Day with the students at École Boréal in Abasand.

Gift of Play Holiday Festival

The holiday season gives us meaning, comfort, familiarity, and connection to others.  However, when life in a community continues to be impacted by a disaster, the experience of the season can be profoundly altered.  For this reason, we created a free, multi-day festival to enliven the season and promote the spirit of community that binds us together.

PowerPlay

Children spend 1.4 years of school time on recess before they graduate elementary school. Recess is valuable time to engage children in hands-on learning and enriched exploration through play.   We are designing new solutions to help schools maximize the power of play.
