There are many joys to running a marathon, but the biggest joy is giving something back while doing it.
We’ve made it! 5km!
Christmas is the spirit of giving without a thought of getting. It is happiness because we see joy in people. It is forgetting self and finding time for others. It is discarding the meaningless and stressing the true values.
The children attending the “Free Hands” program in Limassol supported by “SAGAPO” Children’s Foundation, are feeling the Christmas spirit and have decorated the Christmas tree. Christmas is not as much about opening our presents as it is about opening our hearts.
“Pianist Without Borders” and its founder Fabio Tedde, a talented composer and musician, are touring Uganda since mid November visiting remote villages and unprivileged children’s schools, playing the piano and sharing music all over the country. Most of these children have never seen a real piano before in their lives!
We have met Fabio some years back and we were amazed with his immense love for children and his dream to travel with his piano to Mother Africa and spread the music everywhere. SAGAPO Children’s Foundation is supporting Fabio for his cause as well as all the children in Uganda who listen to his music and attend his concerts. “Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent” – Victor Hugo.
A photo exhibition with the theme “Mothers and Children in the world” comprising of 30 color and black and white photos, reflecting the universal tenderness and love relationship between the mother and the child worldwide was showcased from the 15th to the 28th of November at the Municipality Hall of the 5th arrondissement in Paris.
All photos were printed with the innovative method of “subligraphie”and the proceeds from the sales will go for the reconstruction of a school in Sri-Lanka.
The event was organized in collaboration with the Municipality of the 5th arrondissement in Paris and was under the Presidency of the Mayor Mrs Florence Berthout.
The opening speeches were made by the famous Academic and Historian Professor Alain Blondy and his Excellency the Ambassador of Cyprus in France Mr P. Eliades as well as by Mrs Corinne Cabadou responsible for family matters and children in the Municipality Council.
Located in the heart of the Honduras jungle in central America, the Jungle School provides education to more than 200 children aged 5 to 18 years old. All students come from extremely poor and underprivileged families who live in the rural areas and slums of La Ceiba in a proximity of 17 kms away from the school.
The only bus connecting the surrounding areas to the school has a limited capacity of 30 seats despite the fact that more than 60 children need a ride to the school every day. Children who do not live close to the main road from where the bus passes, often go to school walking or hitchhiking which is very dangerous as the level of kidnapping, crime, and violence in Honduras remains critically high.
Seven teachers in total, teach 200 children in nine classes which makes teaching quite challenging for all. In addition to these difficult conditions the school is missing proper equipment and facilities to provide optimal schooling to the children who are obliged to share worn furniture, installations, books and other material.
Sagapo Children’s Foundation is now joining forces with the association Nuevo Destino to make a difference. The mission in hand is to raise funds to assist in providing needed school supplies and school bags for the new year to all 200 children of the Jungle School.
Thank you for your donations and for supporting our cause to raise funds and change the lives of these underprivileged children.

The children of the junior school in Gampola Wela, a village situated around 30 Km away from Kandy,on the highlands of Srilanka, sit on a dirt floor with old and often broken chairs and desks and nowhere to store their books and pencils. Their school is a shed without windows and without separate classrooms.
All children study in the same space divided in small groups. Two teachers teach 40 children from 11 different classes in the same space simultaneously. The roof of the shed is in very bad condition and it gets worse during the monsoon season. It will cost just € 7,000 to restore the roof, paint the dirty walls, place partitions and buy new desks and chairs for the children.
Thank you for supporting our cause to raise funds and change the lives of these underprivileged children. Thank you for your donations.
