Storie illustrate per la scuola di Kilindoni

i volontari Patrizia e Umberto aiuteranno gli studenti a produrre racconti illustrati, utilizzando anche i computer finanziati da Maisha Marefu Onlus




The main target of this school project is to make Kilindoni students experience the joyful, creative and liberating activity of telling and writing  stories.

Despite the short time available the volunteers Patrizia Zampetti and Umberto Rognoni are going to help students produce illustrated short stories, which will be edited by using the computers financed by Maisha Marefu. 

Once printed these small children books will be sold during the ‘Cena Solidalidale’  (fund raising  dinner) which will take place on November 16thin order to support other future projects.
