What we have been up to

Books for wings📚

Thanks to our special main supporter – that’s you! – we’ve been busy spreading our wings and making a real difference in the lives of Colombian children. Recently, with the help of your generous donations, we were able to purchase a impressive collection of 80 brand-new ESL (English as a second language) textbooks! Directly from Canada to Comunitario Cerritos Elementary School in the rural community of Pereira, Colombia. 

These books are more than just stories – they’re keys that will unlock a world of language learning for these kids, ages 4 to 12. To see the joy on the faces of these children as they receive their new books, be sure to follow us on social media! We’ll be sharing photos and updates on how these resources are helping them improve their English skills. 

About Winged

Why does our duck speak English? 🦆

Oh, we truly love el español 💃🏽! But we are aware of the importance of English in today’s world, and you know one of our missions is to support Colombian kids to learn this language. ¿Wanna know why? 👀 Here is a message from our duck with some facts and figures: 

📢🦆 Here’s why learning English is like the best kind of fish for a wise duck:

  • More than 2 billion creatures speak this language, making it super important to learn. Also, it is the primary language for business ducks 😉
  • Lots of places to find work! No matter where you want to make your nest, if you speak English you’ll be more competitive in the job market
  • Fly to amazing schools! The best universities in the world often use English. Knowing this language will open doors for you to fly even further!
  • Make friends from everywhere! English is like a secret code that lets you chat with ducks from all over the world!
