Play Day for Sponsors and Volunteers!

In May, we organized our first “Play Day” event – to offer an opportunity for potential sponsors and volunteers from Bucharest to meet the children in a relaxed, playful setting.  Twelve people from Bucharest attended – bringing fruits, nuts and cooked food to share. Some also brought games, clothes and books.
The adults could choose to participate alongside the children in one of the workshops we organized outside:  painting, outdoor games, or planting a garden.  We then had a tour of the house and a short yoga for children session followed by a story to calm down before lunch.
After lunch, the guests visited the Fountain of Hope after-school center and learned more about the projects and how to get involved.  Since then, several participants became active volunteers and have already organized several events for the children!
