In the company of cinderellas, cowboys and clowns

Two weeks ago was the time for carnival here in Malta. Of course we at Centru Tbexibix wanted to take part in the celebration so we hosted our own carnival party for the children. The turn out proved to be even better than expected with about 35 children showing up in various creative costumes and for an hour and half they enjoyed themselves with dancing, playing games etc.

Green fingers

It is not only the children that get to learn new things at the centre. Sometimes the volunteers also have the opportunity to try something new, like last Wednesday when David held a workshop on how to take care of and replant the plants of the centre.The initial skepticism of some of the participants quickly vanished and everyone soon got their fingers dirty and enjoyed themselves taking care of the "baby plants".

Thank you David for an interesting and useful workshop!
