Activities & Shift

Samaritan School
About 50 children and young people attend our school that operates in a house with two spaces for learning. We have classes in the morning from 9 am to 12 pm, and again in the afternoon from 4 pm to 6 pm. Our children are from low-income families, so we do not charge and we look for volunteers to help us with education in English, math, art, science, sports and games.

We want to continue growing and be able to count on extra class activities such as film forum, various workshops and a "hotbed" for young people to start participating in the education of the youngest children.

Study material for children such as: pencils, pens, colors, markers, notebooks and exercise books and drawings.
Endowment for the school as boards, books and dictionaries.
Sports equipment
