The project encourages the creation of digital games by children from the favelas through a framework named “I’ve made my game.” The process, based on collaboration, imagination, allows children to be involved in intellectual and affective activities of negotiation, ideas development, results analysis, interaction and creation.
Play is one of the most important aspects of a child’s life. Why? Because through playing children learn to think creatively and interact socially.
Through play, they develop physically and discover a slew of emotional skills and they learn how to process the world. In short, play is pivotal to your child’s development. Play is how children learn.
We are organizing this project in collaboration with Games of Health, a Dutch non-governmental organization. With their professional help we will educate 38 children in game design and 6 to 12 young people to be trained to become teachers.
