La Multi Ani! Happy birthday to us!
Spring has sprung in Barlad and our special kids are blooming!
February marked two years since Delia's Learning Center opened our doors to special needs children in Barlad, Romania. Last March, we moved into a more spacious new facility enabling each of our staff to have individual rooms to work with the children while still having larger spaces for group activitivies.
The move also gave us a small outdoor space. In just a few weeks, the weather will be warm enough for us to begin planting a vegetable and flower garden with the children. We can't wait!
We are amazed at the progress the children are making. For some, that means gaining self-esteem and learning to work independently while for others it is learning the joy of reading. We share their excitement at learning to count and understanding basic mathematical concepts. Since many of our children have few social interactions with other kids, we are thrilled to see them now develop friendships and understand appropriate social behaviors during playtime.
So much to celebrate and be thankful for, despite the tumult of the past year. We want to take this moment to again thank you for being a part of our journey in making sure that ALL children have access to education. Please take a moment to view the photos we are sharing. They will make your day!
