New desks loaded for transport to the Center.
Thank you for radically changing the landscape at Abba’s House Children’s Center (AHCC) in the Dominican Republic with your donations. We were able to create a learning environment in AHCC that has never existed before. The children watched in wonder as their Center evolved and became a school. And when the desks arrived, the children could not contain their excitement! For the first time, the children at AHCC had access to books…over 1000 books where previously, not one book could be found, and had real school desks instead of small plastic chairs. Each day, the children receive one hour of reading time in their library and for those who cannot read yet, curricular materials for teaching reading are now utilized by the AHCC tutors to help move the non-reading children toward literacy. Can you see the pride in the children’s faces? YOU did this!
