The first day of…

Do you remember your first day of school? Highly educated teachers, modern buildings, new books, etc.

In developing countries things are not so easy: sometimes school is far away from home (or even in another village), sometimes books are not available or they cost too much, sometimes teachers are just older people who never received a certificate or a diploma for teaching, buildings are often non-buildings and schools can be a courtyard or, in the luckiest of the cases, a very small room inside a church without respecting any living standard regarding aeration, light and safety. Kito Onlus wants to give just a “normal” first day of school to these children and make it one of the most important of their life.

In our small world, today is a key day for our new office assistant Federica. This is her first day of work at Kito Onlus and we all want to welcome her and wish her good luck in this experience. We are really thrilled to have her with us!

As stated in the first post, Federica will follow this blog and update you on the advances of our project, all the most impressive and interesting international news related to education and healthcare in emergency, together with some children’s stories from all around the developing world!

In the meanwhile, enjoy our Facebook page and discover how you can help us building Kito-School with a donation!

Kito-School in Ghana with CWF

black childHi everybody! Kito Onlus has been working hard in the last weeks and finally we established a partnership with the Clean Water Foundation of Washington (Seattle).

The Clean Water Foundation of Washington is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing safe, clean water to children in developing countries and those hit by natural disasters such as floods, earthquakes and similar life-threatening events.

Thanks to donations from the Rotary Club of Accra North and World Vision and other funds gathered by Leon McLaughlin (President and founder of CWF) through both a radio and TV show, we are going to add water supply to Kito-School in Ghana, in order to guarantee to many and many children good standards of education and hygiene.

Give a look to CWF’s website and support us in our common goal.

Today is a great day! From now on everybody can follow our projects ‘live’, getting aware of our daily work and commitment with Kito’s mission and goals. We want our members and friends to follow us step by step, keeping them updated about everything happening at Kito Onlus, with our partners and the progresses and development of our two main projects: Kito-School and Kito-Health. We therefore rely on a total transparency of our appointments, giving to Kito’s supporters all the information and knowledge he/she needs to join us in Kito’s main goal of improving education and health system in emergency.

We encourage you to give a look to the “About” page, where you can find most of the information about our projects and how to follow and support us.

Paola is our president and the architect who had the idea and designed Kito-School. She is supported by Filippo, our vice-president, who co-founded Kito Onlus with Paola. In the last months two office assistants, Michela and Teresa, from the University of Padua, helped us and made an excellent job of promotion of our projects and only thanks to them we had a chance to start writing this blog. In a couple of weeks we will also be joined by Federica, another student who will be our voice in this blog.

In this blog you will find news about the progresses of our projects and the development of our partnerships together with information that impressed us regarding two hot topics such as education and health in emergency.
