Exchanging through internet with scientists or explorers, training on computers or for digital photography, attending to writing or drawing workshops, such are the offers made by « L’enfant@l’hôpital »to ill children.
A thousand ways to learn differently !
Via Kolibri, a private internet platform, their cyber-reporters send, seldom from the end of the world, short reports with photos and enigmas. They answer personnaly to the children.
The young ill an disabled may also express themselves trough writing, drawing or digital photo workshops. With the most modern tools, culture can so meet ill children.
Since more than 20 years, volonteers of this association intervene at request, in all of France, to help hospitaized ill or disabled children or adolescents.
Born in 1986, the association « L’enfant @ l’hôpital » has always had for mission to equip and accompany ill children and those who take care of them, to modern technologies, in order to establish a continuity school.
Each year, nearly 3000 hospitalized children benefit from the services of « L’enfant@l’hôpital » and several hundreds connect themselves each day to Kolibri.
And I will be one of their correspondants during my world tour. I have made an appointement with the children from the hospital of Valence (France) in January, to introduce them to my project and invite them to follow me for the two coming years.
If you wish, you may read the terms of the agreement I made with the association here below.
