Life is a Game.
We Give Children a Chance to Practice.

We share the love for tabletop games with orphaned children, hoping that playing will teach them how to visualize and pursue their dreams.

1$ is saved each time a player purchases a Quiver case. The money is used to buy card games and board games for the kids, who otherwise would hardly get a chance to enjoy them.

The Best Invested 1$

When we bring games to children, of course, they repay us with smiles; but we also have the satisfaction to know that we help them grow stronger, with a sharpen mind, an expanded imagination, and fine motor skills.

We always look to contribute in projects that have a high added value. Sometimes we might chose to offer support for buying books or building a school, all with the same final purpose of creating better opportunities for children, to improve their chances for a better education and empower them to build a better future for themselves.

March 24, 2017 School building project – Lewis Howes with Pencilsofpromise Ghana, Guatemala or Laos
Close

We think that just like playing keeps a young spirit alive and dreaming no matter your age, education empowers children to follow their dreams and turn them into reality when they grow up. Thanks to our CSR Policy, the entire Quiver community makes a contribution towards providing children with a better future. This time we chose Lewis Howes’ project for our next donation. He has decided to celebrate his 34th year birthday by raising educational support for kids in places that won’t get it otherwise. With the help of Pencils of Promise, we are honored to be given the opportunity of being a part of Lewis’s latest effort of raising funds for building a new school which will benefit more than 100 children in one of Pencils of Promise’s three partner countries: Ghana, Guatemala or Laos. The school will be completed one year from funding completion date.

Thank you Lewis for being a hero to so many children out there.

June 30, 2016 Books for Afghan Girls School North of Afganistan
Close

After our first succesful campaign, this time, we decided to fund this great project set up by Sahar Education from Seattle. Literacy in Afghanistan is 38%, while women literacy doesn’t reach 25%. Since our CSR policy is targeted towards youth education, this project will improve the lives of girls from a rural North of Afghanistan village school, by enabling them to grow into their potential. 250 books on math, science and reading will give them a chance to a better life.

Challenge

For students, books are a window to knowledge and the rest of the world. This window is especially important in the schools for Afghan girls that are supported by Sahar. Teachers are stretched thin, often have limited educations themselves, and have experienced little of the world outside their province, let alone their country. Access to the internet or other electronic media is limited at best.

Solution

Sahar equips schools with libraries to serve the needs of students of all ages. They buy an array of math, science and reading books that are age appropriate and sensitive to cultural issues, always with the goal of providing access to knowledge that is otherwise highly restricted. Each library serves about 500 girls. They provide each library with an initial 250 books, and provide additional books as needed when funds are available.

Long-Term Impact

A well built, functioning school provides a healthy and safe environment for a community’s children, and a place where they learn the skills they need to become productive and peaceful adults. Many school buildings have been constructed in Afghanistan in recent years. But a building alone does not make a school. To be successful, it must be supplied, have qualified teachers, be fully supported by its community, and become fully sustained by its community. That’s Sahar s long-term goal.

December 6, 2015 Christmas Tabletop Games Giveaway St. Stephen's House Orphanage, Bucharest, Romania
Close

On Sunday we decided to make an early Santa surprise visit to the children by offering them sweets, toys, and many great board and card games.

All the children, 14 girls and 8 boys have greeted us with smiles and giggles. We had fun teaching them some of the most amusing and educational games out there:  Hedbanz, Activity, Monopoly Junior Frozen, Scrabble Junior, Spuzzle, Chinese Checkers, Jenga, Dobble, Traffic education, Uno Ninja Turtles, Spider-man boardgame, World Travel, Mucca Pazza, Ghoost! and Ligretto Red Set.

We can’t wait to do this again. 🙂

Learning Through Play

Many kids today are affected by executive functioning issues. This means they have trouble organizing and acting on information. More broadly, they lack the skills they need to plan, organize, remember things, prioritize, pay attention and get started on tasks.

Child psychologists think that card and board games improve children’s executive skills. In fact, they encourage parents to play with their children at home, instead of watching TV or doing homework for long hours.

For example, chess has proven to be an effective teaching method for kids with learning disabilities. Study reveals that students who received 4 hours of math and 1 hour of chess instruction each week, instead of 5 hours of math, showed more improvement in basic math skills like counting and addition.
