Summer school for the children

After months of planning GVI have started the first summer school in the Auxilium school. This Summer school is a great way for kids to be occupied during their summer holidays. A lot of them come from families who cannot afford to take them on holiday or they may not have toys to play with at home and so end up playing on the streets.

At the summer school they are learning English, taking Arts, Crafts and Music classes and playing sports. Other than this they are going to make new friends, improve communication skills and their confidence in English speaking and simply have lots of fun and games. 50 children are attending, they are divided into three teams - the youngest group called Tooti Frooti (Years 2 and 3), Chocolate Chip (Year 4 and 5) and Raspberry Ripple (Year 6 and 7).

GVI Volunteers start at 8 am with aerobics and yoga. After this we have singing and by 9am we start English class. After English the children take arts and crafts, play sports or take music lessons. We are also using our local contacts to bring in people from different walks of life to guide the children- for example this week a gym instructor is coming to give the children education on the importance of eating healthy foods and exercising and keeping the body and mind fit.

Thank you so much for donations to the project and support for the children.
