This month also saw the end of our Transition House Programmes. We celebrated the Graduation ceremony on Sunday 13th June. Our staff, previous years graduates and the team that was here at the time, spent the afternoon enjoying a meal together and having fun in the pool after the ceremony, where this years graduates each made a small speech about how the programme had transformed their lives and were given certificates. Well done to them all.

On June 10th the kids at P orphanage celebrated their progress and achievement at their annual prizegiving. Many of the kids gained certificates for their work throughout the year Some classes performed skits, some of the older girls dressed up and showed us their skills at Indian dance and our dance class also performed their dance to “Tears of the Saints” by Leeland. In the afternoon, we held a “Princess and Hero Carnival” as a fitting end to our heroes programme this year. We taught the children the following characteristics of heroes – courage, selflessness, perseverance, loyalty, kindness, obedience, humility and integrity through various “heroes” some sports, some biblical, some historical, some fictional / Disney. The Carnival was a lot of fun and the kids all dressed up as Superman, Sportsmen, Princesses etc. and had the opportunity to win prizes by taking part in 8 different activities – one for each of the characteristics including races, challenges and crafts. They entered through a human tunnel of bubbles to “Superman” music and did a lap of honour before attempting the different activities. It was a wonderful end to this years hardwork.
