Culinary indulgence!

Culinary indulgence!

After finishing the educational activities, the children from the Star of Hope center in Valea Seacă are eagerly waiting to receive the food supplement, for most of them, this supplement being the only meal of the day. Extremely great was the joy of the children, when, one day, they received pizza at the table. Let the pictures speak for themselves.

The job is learned over time!

At Valea Seacă, mothers learn to cut and sew. Even if they are young, the mothers of the children from the Star of Hope center in Valea Seacă are interested in learning a trade, so that they can later help their children to have a better life. It takes time and a lot of exercise to learn a trade. We are very happy to see that the mothers have understood this and are willing to take the time to learn.

Extracurricular activities for children from Dimăcheni

Extracurricular activities for children from Dimăcheni

After finishing school, the children from Dimăcheni go to the Star of Hope center where they do their homework and participate in various extracurricular activities. The children responded affirmatively to the challenge of illustrating the autumn season with pictures. They gave free rein to the imagination and painted the rich color of autumn. The dried leaves took on color again under the talented children’s pens.

Adult vocational training in Dimăcheni

Adult vocational training in Dimăcheni

In Dimăcheni, training activities for adults from vulnerable groups continue. The art of cutting, sewing and even weaving attracts more and more mothers. They participate with great interest in these activities. Recently, a widowed mother found relief in sewing. Even though she is overwhelmed by the difficulties she is going through, she managed to cut and sew her own underwear for her children. We are very happy that through these activities we are part of some changes both professionally and personally, of the adults, in this case, of the mothers who cross the threshold of our center in Dimăcheni.

As the title of the action shows, the children from vulnerable groups are the ones who enjoyed this activity the most. For them, a day trip to the Suceava area was organized. On this occasion, the children participated in a pottery workshop in Marginea and visited the Museum of Ethnography “Samuil and Eugenia Ioneț”. The itinerary followed by them followed a stop at Salina Cacica, Voroneț Monastery, Planetarium and the Citadel of Suceava. The children were extremely happy and impressed by the places they visited, for most of them being the first time they left Dimăcheni.
