LITERACY - ORPHANS NEEDING HELP

Today our first stop was PANTI ASUHAN ANAK TUNAS BANGSA, a Muslim orphanage with 31 children in their care. As with most orphanages the children either come from Broken Homes or are Orphaned.

 

 

 

 

We were taken on a tour of the facilities by the young boys and girls who clearly had not seen a man with hairy arms before - I was labeled Polar Bear by one of them! 

 

 

When we brought out the balls and skipping ropes the children (see video) went crazy, its always an amazing feeling to see their smiles and enjoyment being so active.

 

 

The support team were very appreciative of the discussion regarding "Read for Life" and keen to learn more and implement further ASAP, we will be back soon to support the children in their future development.
