The Lucky Recipient this year will be The Foster Family Farm House Homework club located at 1085 Ramsey Cres, Unit 334 Ottawa.
The Foster Farm House is a Community house * acts as a resource centre where a variety of services and activities are offered. One of those resources is a homework club for kids.
A typical day at the Homework Club goes like this:
The children come in at 5:30 and usually start their homework and request assistance if needed. Some of the children go into the computer room to do research for reports or projects. They usually have a snack about 30 minutes into the program which is provided through Kick start program from the Ottawa food bank. As we know that a hungry child is distracted and not focused so a healthy snack is important.
The children then return to homework and support from our homework club staff. Our staff speak English, French, Arabic and Somali. The children will sometimes ask for additional work to practice math etc. if they are finished their own assignments. Parents come and pick up the children and talk to the workers at 7:30 the program is finished. The program runs 3 days a week for 2 hours each night with 30 children using this homework club at any given time.
This year once again I invited my dear friends who are also terrific designers to help me make this happen.
