It has been a challenging school year to all of us, but for the kids especially. It was very hard to cope with the pandemic, and online schooling, particularly for the kids that our project is supporting. They all face different challenges from poverty, disability, poor living conditions, lack of parental care and/or means for life. Many of them didn’t have computers or tablets to attend the online classes. But still, all Divac Scholarship Students managed to achieve excellent school results, and still find the time and the energy to volunteer and support the other vulnerable people. Some of them were helping the elderly, some were giving classes to their peers, some were brining groceries and medicines to their neighbors, some were helping in environmental activities, or the animal shelters.
We are so proud of all of them for being so persistent, smart and brave!
We all have been kids and needed support in our lives. For those kids is much harder, and we must show them that we acknowledge their efforts and their hard work. Let us jointly support their path towards better future.
