Hello everyone,

Thanks to all your generous contributions we recently purchased a projector, dvd player, and speakers for the audio-visual section of our Special Education Centre.

We screened our first presentation - Baby Galileo: Discovering the Sky - from the Baby Einstein series, on a cool Sunday evening on the roof of our centre. The film follows a kangaroo playfully exploring the solar system, the stars and galaxies.

The presentation of the material was simple yet engaging, and kept the children interested throughout. Many of the images seemed to be from NASA, which left them mesmerised.

We will keep you posted on new additions to the centre, as and when we make them, and the activities related to them.

Thank you once again for all your support!

Hello everyone,

Thanks to all your generous contributions we were recently able to purchase a muscle stimulator for those children in need of physiotherapy. The stimulator provides a mild electrical current to stimulate nerve endings, with the aim of reversing the damage to a child's nervous system. It helps those children who have issues with muscle spasticity, improves their motor functions, and enables improvement in voluntary movement. Effectively, this form of physical therapy improves their quality of life.

We also purchased a variety of books and toys for the children to help them learn alphabets and numbers, and recognise shapes through storytelling and with the aid of wooden blocks, index cards, and jigsaw puzzles.

We are in the process of purchasing a projector and screen for the audio-visual room, and will post an update on this and activities related to it in our next report.

Thank you once again for all your support!
