    Charity Foundation Aitan Lapsi, Eesti Pandipankend and Ministry of Culture selected the theatres that will be performing environment-themed plays for free in kindergartens across Estonia starting from November 2016.

    In the 2017/2018 season, the process continues with two troupes – in addition to the Miksteater familiar from last year, the Piip ja Tuut Teater will also start performing a play titled “Pobiseja” (The Mumbler) which is written by Piret Jaaksi and directed by Marek Demjanov. Donald Tomberg is the author of the children’s play “Erakordne veepudel” (The Extraordinary Water Bottle) performed by Miksteater.

    In this season, the plays will be performed at 130 kindergartens, incl. for the first time in Tartu and Harju counties. Jõgeva County (13), Viljandi County (24), Harju County (34), Pärnu County (25), Lääne-Viru County (11), Tartu County (20), Hiiu County (2), Rapla County (1).

    The theatre troupes will contact the kindergartens in the named counties and agree the time for the performance. The project will continue next year, until all kindergartens across Estonia have been visited.

    During the 2016/2017 season, the theatres visited 120 kindergartens across Estonia with nearly 7,000 kids in the audience.

    The largest part of donations goes to our core project in co-operation with Estonian theaters; the goal of the project is offering theatre experiences to children from underprivileged families. Almost all Estonian active theaters have joined the project, thus children can visit theatres all over Estonia. The number of children needing support and their contacts are established in co-operation with social workers and organisations working with children.


























    Another important direction is our co-operation with the Estonian Arts Museum. This enables all the schoolchildren to participate in the education programmes offered by the Estonian Arts Museum. The project is taking place in the five museums of the Estonian Arts Museum and it offers a choice of a total of 16 various education programmes to choose from.









    In co-operation with the Estonian Children’s Literature Center, all the children’s departments in Estonian hospitals have been delivered unique movable libraries on wheels, or book carousels, which delivered a large selection of books and board games for the children treated in hospitals. We supported the project with 16 500 EUR that was collected from donations of the kind people that returned their packages. This money bought books and board games for the mobile libraries. Plaat Detail and metal company ASSI that designed and made the book carousels, contributed with 25 000 EUR. With the support from the Ministry of Culture, Estonian Children’s Literature Center will take care of that there will be plenty of books and exciting games on the carousels.





    No costs related to administration or similar are covered from donations; they are dedicated only to the children that are in need of help. Outdoor advertising campaigns, thanksgiving events and other similar costs related to the foundation are covered by our good sponsor partners.
