With our new space we now have more than 40 children enrolled in our drop in child care program. This program is something we have hoped to bring to HOCW for a very long time. Having a center where mothers can drop off their children when coming to HOCW means that mothers are free to concentrate on their studies or focus on working with the women's collective. It also means that we have the opportunity to implement early childhood education programs getting our community's children off to a great start! We recently built an extended space which provides the young children with more space to move around and play. Teacher Hindu is hard at work entertaining our youngest community members with books, activities, songs and games. The children are provided with nutritious meals and comfy mats to sleep on.
We recently held another children’s party celebrating the end of the Children’s Program at HOCW and the return of our older students to school for the upcoming term. Our children’s party was held on the 3rd of June where we celebrated with games, activities, food and drinks. With help from our sponsors who provide tuition we were able to send 4 new students to school this term, all of whom are very excited to be attending school. HOCW now has 46 sponsored children and we are so grateful to our sponsors! Our own students in English, computer classes, tailoring, and business classes completed their final exams on the 29th and 30th of June. Those who performed well in their exams will be promoted to the next level within their studies. We look forward to holding another graduation ceremony this fall for all of our HOCW program graduates.
HOCW is constantly expanding and we are working our hardest to keep up with the needs for our ever growing number of clients. We are so grateful to all of our donors for making our programs possible. Thank you!
