Description of charity's activities and outcomes:
Our organization runs a very special child care centre, a bilingual Spanish-English service where young children who only speak Spanish at home have the opportunity to share their culture with children who speak English.AMIGOSS understands that inclusion involves taking into account all childrens social, cultural and linguistic diversity (including learning styles, abilities, disabilities, gender, family circumstances and geographic location) in curriculum decision-making processes.At AMIGOSS we actively promote the needs and interests of children and families from culturally diverse backgrounds and build relationships of trust and understanding with parents and carers. By doing so we improve the mental health and wellbeing of the children in our care. At Amigoss we make sure that children with additional needs are provided with appropriate programs and experiences in consultation with parents/guardians and specialized support services, and with appropriate physical resources if required.In order to improve our seniors health, we organise a full program of activities for people over 65 years old through the year:1-Memory and Cognitive Stimulation Workshops2-Cooking and Healthy Habits promotion through fun activities such as conquest and tastings.3-Late Adulthood Physical Training4-We organise activities such as functions (lunch and picnics) where seniors have the opportunity to engage in conversations with younger members of the Spanish Speaking Community and speak in their first language.One of the most important cognitive activities for the elderly is engaging and meaningful conversations. By asking their opinions and advice on situations and events, their minds are stimulated and they experience a feeling of self-worth.5-Hobbies and Crafts for seniors such as Ukulele and mosaic workshops.Learning a new hobby or taking up a craft can be an excellent way for elderly individuals to:-Keep their brains active and alert. -Provide interaction with others. -Maintain a sense of positive self-esteem. -Maintain eye and hand coordination and fine motor skills. At AMIGOSS we develop cultural business knowledge and skills in the community through organising workshops and other activities aimed at attaining employment, as well as understanding Australian culture and citizenship rights and responsibilities.We also provide a venue of informal education for raising cultural awareness and acceptance.
