In September BEI sponsored a workshop in Baku for the first time. This unique week was initiated by Ms. Fidan Suleymanova who invited Ms. Simona Sabbatini to Baku in order to coach and empower the children of SOS Children´s Villages Azerbaijan. This was both a challenging and an emotional week both for staff and children and tears were shed upon Simona´s departure :( But we promise she´ll be back!
After the success of the BEI teacher training in Uganda back in April, Ms. Simona Sabbatini and Prof. Reeta Sonawat returned to Uganda for another training in order to fulfil the growing demand for such workshops. We would like to thank Buyemba Suubira Uganda Organisation (BSUF) for planning, orginizing and hosting this teacher training. Thanks again Reeta and Simona for making the long journey once again and putting your all into it. Well done everyone!
BEI supported a second teacher training seminar in Africa, one month after the one in Kenya. This time it took place in Uganda and was organised and hosted by Reach The Poor. 50 teachers from the Kasese region attended the training which was facilitated as always by our dear Dr. Prof. Reeta Sonawat who again made her long way from India. Alongside Reeta were her assistant Sona and Ms. Simona Sabbatini. Thanks everyone for this well orchestrated production!
BEI are proud to have sponsored a teacher training workshop in Malindi, Kenya, back in March 2018. The training was organised and hosted by Pole Pole Project Group and Watoto Kenya Onlus. The week long training focused on competency building and was kindly facilitated by Dr. Prof. Reeta Sonawat and her assistant Sona. Thank you all!

While creating their own fairy tales and stories, it has been possible to identify and address the following issues, :
Psychological state of children – Children’s fairy tales will offer a valuable insight on their current psychological state. During the project implementation, the professional psychologist will open individual children’s cases for the children.
Educational level – This will allow us to assess the real literacy level of the participants. Furthermore, emphasis will be given on the weakest points of their writing skills.
Inspire children to engage in bigger projects – During the project implementation, we seek cooperation opportunities with the children magazines. The best fairy tales would eventually be published which will motivate and inspire children to continue writing and reading.
Mr Duer has been a long time supporter of BEI and he is now stepping up to replace Mr Roitman as member of the Board of Directors.
Even though Mr Roitman will continue to act as Honorary Chairman, BEI wishes to thank him for so many years of involvement and dedication.
Good luck to both of them!
BEI has facilitated and funded another teacher training seminar, led by Dr. Reeta Sonawat. Pole Pole and Watoto joined forces and gathered tens of teachers from the whole area.
Thanks to all contributors for allowing these small scale projects beyond the annual donations, which get great feedback from the field.
