From popcorn trees, to bible stories, to sticky paint and parachute fun, in the last few months we have been blessed with the opportunity to expand what we offer children in our care and have started a morning and afternoon stimulation & development programme. This has been developed by a professional OT and educator who volunteered her time to construct a comprehensive programme specifically for the children in our care. This covers everything from motor development, language & writing skills, and social play, to rights & responsibilities, arts &crafts, and learning about who they are in God. It is such a joy to not only hear the children singing and laughing, but to see the joy on the carers faces as they see broken children grow and develop to their full potential. The children burst in from school eagar to start the program. We have seen this programme help children delayed, walk and improve their speech. Children who normally play alone are interacting with other children.
We believe that as this program develops we will see more children grow and develop, no longer struggling at school, delayed, or developmentally challenged, but full of hope, succeeding in school and reaching their full potential for a new start in life.
