This is a very special time at Abba's House Children's Center in Cienfuegos, Dominican Republic. The children are enjoying their first ever swingset. Thanks to a very generous donation, we are able to expand some of our feeding initiatives and physical education projects. To augment the one swingset, we are building a full playground area, something the children have never seen or experienced before. It will include additional swingsets, slides, climbing options, and structures to explore. Further, two of our oldest students are leading the others in physical education and health activities to include calisthenics and more structured games.
Each Thursday, our children now get to participate in arts and crafts activities including drawing, painting, and jewelry-making,
We hope to soon have Internet access at the Center and access to curricula in Spanish across all subject areas. We have set the goal of obtaining a set of 50 iPads.
Children are enjoying the books in the library added in December, and are making book reports and giving presentations on those reports.
We are thankful for our partners in this work who love our children from afar. Thank you seems inadequate. The children send their love.
