I had a pleasant time at Casa Milagro working with the local kids.
Especially teaching Miguel, how he teaches foreigners the Spanish language. It was a really good practice for his English and for my Spanish.
Thank’s to Thilda and the kids, who made this stay so enjoyable.
SIMON FROM GERMANY – THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING SUCH A LOVELY FRIEND FOR THE CHILDREN!
DEAR FRIENDS OF “CASA MILAGRO”
The children at “Casa Milagro” serve the seniors a meal each day – going to their homes, offering the meal and asking what else they might need. That is part of our education – “Taking care, looking after each other” and more.
– spread the word about us and our needs – so many people are looking for a way of helping directly!

We are having fun at one of our recent beach cleanings.. 🙂
Our main goal at CasaMilagro is to give children access to education and a proper nutrition, and a playful, safe environment. In addition, we want them to develop strong social skills in order to become resilient, self-confident children.
Below are some of our recent activities:
We ran a photo project in which the kids learned how to use a camera and prepared a small public exhibition. We provide a wide range of creative activities for the children: painting T-shirts, singing, playing recorders and other musical instruments, sewing clothes for dolls, making necklaces, and performing a short theatre play for the parents in January – just to name a few 🙂
With all these creative activities, and with our support, the children experience what they are already capable of – strength and self-confidence. The activities are a great way to develop social skills because they share knowledge, materials, work space, and interact in a group environment.
Although the children come from strenuous living situations, we can see their positive improvements everyday. We play very important roles in their lives especially for those who don`t have the opportunity to go to the Caracol (Waldorf school)!
We are so happy that we can already provide all of this to our children and thank YOU for your support!
New volounteers arrived at Casa Milagro! We are Angi (22) from Switzerland and Hanna (19) and Dani (22) from Germany. Angi and I are studying Social Work, and we do an internship here. Hanna was interested in doing some volunteer work after finishing school. We all are staying for a few months at the Lake and really enjoy to be involved at Casa Milagro.
For example we give some English classes to the children. Also we offer handicrafts and playing music. With the women of Casa Milagro we’re making handicrafts too – lovely little bead work they call mostacillas. We really would like to learn how to do it as terrific as the women. We are trying to help them with writing and maths as well.
We’re looking forward to what comes next because there is always something new to experience here at Casa Milagro!
