School presentations

We finished our activities at Nyankyerenease Methodist School

as we worked on their given assignments and made a poster for

each class out of them, which was left at the school for the

children to have a reminder of our visit.

 

We also chose the best children’s works and handed out prizes

to the winners, as well as we returned their works to them,

 

so that every student in class could have a look at them.

We are now moving on to the next school. However,

as most students are now taking their exams and

going on vacation afterward, it could take some time

until we make the next school visits.

 

 

 

 

Cooperation with US High School

As we received the profiles of the 40 students from Kumasi Academy,

we typed them and forwarded them to the US High School. As soon

as they will have finished reading them and found a partner for

each student, we are confident that communication between the

schools will start in September.

 

 

Monthly socialization meeting

The monthly meeting of the HIV positive care and support group

took place at the Center for National Cultural Centre of Kumasi on

the 19th of July, 2008 at 9:30a.m.  Most of the children and their

caregivers were present and participated actively.  After checking

on the children’s condition, the Light for Children volunteers

Sara Glazer and Christian Monteith, as well as visiting volunteer

Andre Terra, went to the playground of the park to play with

the children, while the parents were given advice on proper

nutrition and other helpful things.

 

 

 

 

Introduction of new school presentation

We worked out a new school presentation that is focusing on the sexual

assault of children. It is based on some info material we got from

Canada. It’s main purpose to strengthen the children’s awareness

of their responsibility for their body and to feel confident to

prevent others from touching or doing any other things with

them which they don’t want them to. The presentation should

be first used when we go to the next school and then used

next to the “Journey of Hope” presentation, as it targets

the same group of children.

 

Last month new introduced child Junior was also present again.

The meeting ended after the traditional joint lunch and the

handing out of this month’s medication and food supply at

around 3:00p.m.
