Villagers using the Center and an updated schedule

12 Jul

Village Children

The center is open for any of the local children. It gives them a safe place to play (they have no public parks, gardens etc) as well as access to toys and art and craft.  You have to remember the children’s families are very poor, with no access to toys and puzzles for them to play with.  We have many children that come all the time, and some that come and go for a variety of reasons. We also have many children that have grown with the centre and stayed for years.

Here’s the newly developed schedule for the centre. You can see that we cover English, computer classes, dance and theatre but we also cover first aid and hygiene. Each Thursday we give the children a toothbrush and toothpaste and sit with them to show them how to brush properly. They then take the toothbrush and paste home to their family. During the first aid sessions Lungdy checks for wounds which need dressing and asks each child if they have any sore teeth or other issues. When the children need emergency care we take them to the dentist or doctor.
