Struggling children: how to help them grow by playing in the street and becoming… journalists

  • 0

The kids are becoming journalist to tell us about their fantastic animals. Here’s how the Mammut from Scampia make its voice heard again.

You read it right. Here’s a new, amazing idea of the Mammut Territorial Center: the kids from Scampia have the opportunity to become journalists and write for the Il Mattino newspaper.

We’ll talk about that in a minute. First, I want to ask you something and take a step back in this beautiful story.

What should cooperatives, territorial centers and institutions do today to actively take part in education and research of new pedagogical methods?

Today, all around the world, we talk more and more often about pedagogy, an abused word that has lost all meaning. We need to figure out what can actually turn the tables.

These Mammut Territorial Center’s ideas can. This mammoth that travels the Neapolitan streets could be a great news.

Let me explain: the Angelo Affinita Foundation has decided to intervene in Naples, in Scampia, in our region, Campania. We have decided to intervene near our homes. That’s why we need your help, and the contribution of all those like me and you who believe that, to do good, you must be illuminated.

So, the good news, now more than ever, is: SCAMPIA LIVES.

It’s alive thanks to its wonderful youth. It’s alive thanks to all who love it and are trying to improve the social life in such a beautiful but complicated neighborhood. This is how the MammutBus was created, thanks to the Mammut Territorial Center.

The MammutBus is a project designed for the Neapolitan children, to promote exchange and integration between neighborhoods by playing. It’s a play bus, a bus that carries games and everything you need for town festivals or educational trainings. We intend to teach the children an alternative development process by playing. Beginning with making the street a place of celebration and education.

This teaching method may seem unconventional to you, but it’s deep-rooted in the Italian educational culture. And what matters most is: IT WORKS!

The MammutBus brings the active pedagogy in the street. It’s in the street, in the courtyard, where the kids grow.

So, a great new thing is born: “JOURNALIST FOR A MONTH.”

In this project the kids will tell the public forms and features of all the creatures of their fantasy. They’ll do it through the pages of Il Mattino, the local newspaper that started a collaboration with the Mammut Territorial Center.

Another way of promoting culture and stimulate our children’s fantasy, in the Mammut’s style, by playing.

We, at the Angelo Affinita Foundation, believe that, BY PLAYING, WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD. Try it with us. Will you?
