Please note:

The AACTB is a non-profit association whose president by Anne Seiler and the project and financially supports them in their free time. The AACTB Child Centre is a purely donation-funded, social aid project in a developing country. Without exception, all donations go directly into the project, which is why many people want to support it, which is a great pleasure for the children and us active people on the spot. Since all donations are exclusively for the benefit of the child centre, no donations intended for the children will be spent on transportation of interested visitors or donors who visit the child centre or donate their donations there personally. Against this background, it goes without saying that no donations for a free car service from the hotel to Terra Boa are diverted. That is certainly also in your interest as a dedicated donor. Since we always receive questions from donors who want to visit the children's centre on site, we have compiled the most important questions and answers for you here. We ask you to read and attention to these:

 

How do I get to the AACTB Child Centre in Terra Boa if I personally want to donate to the project?

As part of its itinerary, Anne's Info Point offers selected tours with a visit to the child centre. You then incur no extra costs. On this occasion, you can also bring in donations in kind.

 

Those who would like to visit the child centre outside the tours offered by Anne can do so at their own expense and by appointment. Please make an appointment in advance via the contact form. On the agreed day you will be picked up from your hotel by a driver and driven back again. The transfer costs depending on length of stay in the child centre between 40.00 and 50.00 Euro. Alternatively, you organize the transfer by appointment with a taxi or rental car.

 

If you are an aviation sponsor or just want to donate donations in kind, Anne's Info-Point's staff will pick them up at your hotel free of charge. Please inform us via the contact form or Anne via WhatsApp, so that she can plan and arrange an appointment for the delivery.

 

How do I become a flight sponsor for donations or medical supplies already collected in Germany, UK etc.?

If you still have space in your suitcase or want to carry an additional piece of luggage, please contact us via our contact form. We will then organize the donation transport with you. If you would like to collect and transport donations yourself, please note that airlines charge additional baggage. At TUI, for example, an additional suitcase with 20kg costs 65€. If you need help, please write us.

If you want to organize and organize a donation event, we can send you flyers within Germany and borrow information material. Let us know so that we can support you.

 

How do I behave correctly in the child centre?
The children are happy about your visit. Please treat them with respect and an interested distance. These children have rights as well.

  • Therefore please do not take the children on the arm or on the lap. Also, it goes without saying that you do not kiss, caress or touch the children. Sometimes children seek physical contact by spontaneously embracing or touching a visitor. Please then respond friendly by smiling at the children but also clearly and unambiguously by briefly confirming the hug and then releasing it. Smile is a universal language and is understood all over the world. Unfortunately, touches can be misunderstood. Therefore please refrain from it. It serves the protection of the children as well as theirs.
  • Our children live in adverse conditions in a slum. Even though we are very concerned about hygiene at the Child Centre, there can be teething troubles, stomach and intestinal diseases, skin diseases, parasites, lice, etc., as in any facility where many people are. Even against this background, you should refrain from body contact. Think about the risk of infection and keep in mind that you too can transmit germs.
  • Please do not give any donations directly to the children. In the interests of equal treatment, the employees distribute the donations according to need and purpose. Please refrain from bringing sweets. Even though our committed dentist cares for the teeth of our children, the dental filling and consumable material is purchased by us in Germany or donated by German dentists and transported to the child centre with flight mentors.
  • Please refrain from taking portrait photos or videos of the children and publishing them. Like yourself and every other person, our children and their families have the right to their own image and may in principle decide for themselves whether or in which context images of them are published or not.

On behalf of the children and their families, we say Thank you! Obrigado!

Wir sagen im Namen der Kinder und deren Familien: Danke! Obrigado!

Noi diciamo a favore dei bambini e delle famiglie Grazie! Obrigado!

Au nom des enfants et des familles nous disons Merci! Obrigado!
