------The Good Night Story
The Good Night Story is one of the most important projects of the Rainbow Volunteer Club in our "Children Accompanying Plan". The project is mainly aims to give companionship to disadvantaged children, or children in rural schools, who are facing many problems due to lack of parental companionship, poverty and other reasons.
Unsatisfactory academic performance, truancy, dropout, lack of education and supervision due to intergenerational care, escrow or unsupported care children are more likely to develop psychological loneliness, self-indulgence than other children of the same age. Closeness, inferiority, indifference, introversion and other emotions or characters are more prone to deviations in emotion, personality and behavior. It directly leads to poor sleep in children, nightmares, bed-wetting, lack of concentration and other phenomena occur from time to time.
Because of such problems, we take children's social-emotional learning SEL as the theoretical basis, use sound as a tool, and use 10-15 minutes of good night stories before they go to sleep every night.
Before time, choose stories that can be well expressed and valued in terms of self-discipline, self-confidence, independence, empathy, responsibility, emotional management, interpersonal communication, etc., and organize RVC volunteers and teams to record warm good night stories for children , through the exclusive good night story machine, let children fall asleep in a relaxed and happy atmosphere, and at the same time can gain knowledge, broaden their horizons, cultivate character and habits, and most importantly, obtain psychological and emotional companionship.
Children in some remote areas of Nepal are in a more difficult situation. Rainbow hopes to support and encourage these children in a variety of ways, and guide them to the right path with love and action.
At the same time, we also hope that more parents can tell their own good night stories to their children through voice. In every happy or sad night, there is an exclusive time for you and your child, and in your child seeds full of love and hope are planted in a dream, and we believe that one day they will take root and sprout.
We always believe that through our efforts, we can bring hope to the helpless eyes, strength to the tender hands, strength to the weak body, and confidence to the humble soul. We hope that every child will have a childhood life worth remembering, be healthy in body and mind, and grow up happily.
As of now (February 2022), the project mainly covers children in remote areas of Gansu, Xinjiang, Qinghai, and Ningxia in China, and children in need in Sindhupalchok, Kathmandu, Pokhara, and Sainamaina in Nepal. More than 5,000 volunteers have participated, and more than 10,000 story machine have been issued.
