Partnership for the future of the children from “Înger Alb” Child Care Center!

Cartoon-House-and-ChildrenChild's drawing of their houseThis month, our organization signed a partnership with “ÎngerAlb” Child Care Center, which will allow us to organize various nonformal education workshops with the children.

Our first encounter with the children from ÎngerAlb took place right on Christmas Day, when Vișinel, Anca, George and Cătalin played the part of Santa Claus for no less than 16 children. The bond created between the children and us, that rapidly consolidated, made us wish for this collaboration to span year round, not just for the holiday season.

Therefore, the first regular meetings started on the 18th of January and have taken place every two weeks ever since. Among the activities that we began to conduct, we recall: theater evenings, workshops for stimulating creativity and reasoning, dance workshops, painting classes, et cetera.

So far, we made it to our 3rd meeting, and the bond between the children and us is strengthening more and more, as we confess to have wished for.  For that we have to give special thanks first and foremost to our vicepresident, Anca Cujbă, for both overseeing the signing of the agreement, as well as coordinating the project..

Also, we would like to take this opportunity to let you know that in the future our activities will cease to take place in the space we so hard struggled to open. We’ve been compelled by the circumstances to look elsewhere for a place to hold our meetings, in order to avoid creating any kind of inconveniences to the neighbors. Until we reach a final solution, George Scarlat managed to obtain a class room from P.T.T.R. high school, where future meetings with the children will take place.

Other than this tiny inconvenience, we are pleased with the fruits of our work and with the fact that we continue to have more and more friends and supporters.

Very warm greetings to everybody,

the DVT team

Your life, our responsibility!

responsabilitatea noastraDVT and institutionalized youths are meeting on Saturday to spend some time together as a family!

To us, our duty is our promise. And our duty is to offer institutionalized children a chance to a better life, through the means of nonformal education. Thus, starting today, Saturday, the 19th of October, we began to conduct our first activities within the realm of nonformal education involving institutionalized youths.

A first day came to an end at the pilot Youth Center, a wonderful day that we spent learning and playing at the personal development workshop by Vișinel. The weekends to come will be full of surprises and activities of which we will let you know more when the time comes.

What we can tell you right away is that we’re trying hard to schedule interactive workshops on various subjects and difficulty levels every weekend. The schedule is a flexible one, because we wish for all those participating to be as relaxed as possible and to feel encouraged to communicate and to act. Our activities will mainly take place on Sundays.

Seeing that today was the first time we met the children from D.G.A.S.P.C. Sector 4, we would like to give back to you some of the joy that we’ve experienced among them and the fulfillment that we felt seeing how they chose to spend their time with us. Their life is our responsibility and we are doing our best for them to put to good use the knowledge that they acquire.

Our main goal is to have in the future one of this youngsters come back to us, after having left child care, and tell us how it feels to have your own family and your own work place or business; to share with us how good it feels to live as everybody else, fulfilled professionally and personally.

In the same time, we would very much appreciate your support. Any kind of involvement from your side means the world to those of us in Desenăm Viitorul Tău, and even more to the children.

Our thanks head towards D.G.A.S.P.C. sector 4, our main partner in this project of personal development for institutionalized youths.
