Project Report | Aug 6, 2014
Learning through fun at the HTDC orphanage

By Emma Taylor | IDV Head of Media & Marketing

Saying thank you for being recognized!
Saying thank you for being recognized!

Thanks to your generous donations the kids at the HTDC orphanage are continuing to thrive!

The school year has just finished and all of the kids have worked really hard and done well. However, special praise goes to the six kids who “graduated” kindergarten and who will be moving onto elementary school this fall.

The orphanage held a special graduation ceremony to celebrate their achievement, and its partly by rewarding achievements in this way that the orphanage leaders teach the kids about responsibility while also having fun.

But, the orphanage leaders’ successful methods show every day, not just on special events like graduation.

The older kids continue to get involved with helping around the orphanage. For example, by helping organize “summer camp” now school is out. Also, Nathaelle, one of the eldest kids, is now helping to translate when English speaking visitors drop by.

The older kids also help the younger kids learn about responsibility by organizing competitions to see who has the tidiest room, or does their homework first. In this way all the kids at the orphanage helps out while also having fun.

It’s great to see the kids thriving this way and its all thanks to you. Before your help the orphanage lived from day to day. Thanks to you the kids can now enjoy being kids, while also learning important lessons about life.

As always, if you ever have any queries about how we’re using your donation, please don’t hesitate to email Emma@IDVolunteers.org. I would be delighted to hear from you.
