La Pinya is a self-organized pedagogic community, brought to life by children, mothers, fathers and other contributors aimed at reappropriating the process of bringing up children from a perspective of community and transformation.
It is an environment where children can grow up in liberty, respect and community. An environment that lets them learn to live together, resolve conflicts and explore their creativity - being in contact with nature, having the possibility to express their emotions and make decisions on their interests and topics of education.
That way, la Pinya is also a meeting point for families and other people who are interested in alternative ways of education, which allows creating connections of mutual support and dealing with the challenges of not being part of mainstream educational models.
We would also like to emphasize that we perceive la Pinya as a part of initiatives promoting the transformation of society, taking into account that education is one of many aspects of life we would like to change - to be able to live in a society which is fair, having healthy relationships and a life which is more satisfying.
Description of the project. Main features, strengths and differentials.
For 17 years, we have been bringing to life this self-organized project, with a lot of enthusiasm and love. Now, facing the current situation, we would like to ask you for your help. Full of streinght and joy, we want to open our doors again, and to be able to do that, we need a financial contribution to continue our community work.
From the beginning, we covered our expenses by various kinds of events, organized by the members of our community and contributors. These events have always been a key element in making our project financially accessible for everybody. Because of that solidarity, there has always been a lot of support for us, so maintaining the project was not only done by the member families.
Because of the current situation regarding COVID-19 we could not organize any of those events (and at the moment it does not really look like this will change soon). We are in a situation where we will probably not have sufficient founds to cover our expenses from now until September.
Furthermore, during the last weeks, the building that hosts us has suffered various kinds of damage by rain, also affecting the material the children use.
The aim of this crowdfunding project is to ask for economic support to be able to cover our expenses until September.
Why this is important
The idea that free education should be accessible for all is made possible by the commitment of the whole community.
Sometimes, La Pinya is a dream that has become reality. We are a living organism which grows by the symbiosis of each and every one of us. We think we can be proud of what we achieved until now, and there is much more to do. Keep on caring for others, and taking good care of ourselves... We are open to diversity, always taking into account the individuals and their uniqueness.
La Pinya started 17 years ago, made by people having a background in libertarian pedagogical concepts and other free education models who create interdisciplinary educational processes, encouraging the children to ask critical questions and reverberate what they think. Developing ideas and concepts together, we aim at the best possible education and the biggest possible impact in transforming society.
Our communitarian perspective allows a constant evaluation and evolution of the project, which allows improving our educational model every day.
