Culture for children


Crescent Moon

Childhood is a treasured edge where the foundations of intelligence, personality, and social skills are created, and it's truly important to have quality programs available to help children develop their skills. 

Crescent Moon is a project created to help children to express themselves peacefully through arts, culture, and language. We also are looking to finish with the lack of cultural activities available for children after school. 

Art promotes creativity and expression, art making at a young age has many benefits for kid - physical, emotional, and mental wellbeing.

The Craft Club

We're planning to open the craft club for 5 children by the 1st week of March, this program will last 4 weeks as well, and it will be lead by a teacher who has experience working with children development, her name is Yedid Castro. 

Besides the money we need to pay for this course, we need some craft materials, if you have any that you would like to donate such as markers, beads, threads, macrame threads, glue, pom poms, feathers, etc.. Please drop them at Cafe Maria Restaurant anything that can be used in a craft project will be well appreciated.


Please support this program by making a donation

The art for children program started this Wednesday, February 17th, two groups of 5 children each are taking art classes at Xochitl's studio, where they're learning about basic painting.


Xochitl Rivera is well known in the East Cape as a talented artist and we are fortunate to have her involved in this program.

Upcoming Programs

















All of crescent moon's programs are sponsored by donations and are 100% free for children who are part of it. 

Hopefully, new programs will be added as soon as the new normality and your support can allow it.

All the safety measures are being taken very seriously and children will be well protected.

Why Crescet Moon?

 I started thinking of schools or tutors I could find in the future for Luna (my 1-year-old baby) based on the things I wished I could have done and learned when I was a child growing up in Los Barriles. Things I couldn't do because back in the ‘90s this beautiful town was a very different place. There was no school of dance, no language academies, and certainly not an internet to use to learn something on your own. Surprisingly, 30 years later, we still don't have all these kinds of programs available for children. I realized too that Luna is not the only child in Los Barriles, so why not try to bring these programs to other children too?
