Summer of '21

Dear Donors,

Summer is over in Csíkszereda, school is starting on Monday and as usually, also the first frosty mornings arrived. I cannot say we were glad to welcome them, there are still tens of tomatoes still green in our little community garden behind the volunteer accommodation. But rest assured we have a nice and busy summer period behind us with lots of sunshine and laughter. We can look back happy because, despite the pandemia still lingering around, we could reach out to around 400 local children during the vacation and keep them entertained with non-formal playful activities in English. 

In the first weeks of this summer, we were busy with setting up a little playground in the backyard, we bought a swing and slide set, a climbing wall, and a climbing rope. Big thanks to our volunteers, Linda and Simon, for helping Peter with this huge task. Now the families who take care of the raised beds of the community can bring their children with them to play. They were not the only children benefiting from the playground. We were able to organize 11 English camps in the backyard this summer! Until now we could organize camps only in the surrounding village schools, but we had the request from the local parents of Csíkszereda for a long time to do camps in the city. By arranging the yard to accommodate 20-30 children, we were finally able to answer this request. We can say that it was a huge success, 20-18 children participated in each camp and the feedback was all positive. 

Parallel to the camps in the backyard, we also organized 5 separate camps in 3 surrounding villages, with 20-25 kids participating in each. 

We would like to say a huge thank you to all our donors and our volunteers who made this amazing summer possible! Here's to the next one!
