Dear Parents, we are issuing a Blessing Alert!
Our most devoted fan of the colour blue (which she expresses with her outfit) has found a way to impress the preschool children – she has moved in with the older girls at Martin’s House, so that she can regularly watch them practise their drawing skills. And because she learns very quickly, she now draws the best of all the preschoolers.
She is a strong character – she is ambitious and very much dislikes it when things don’t go her way. Going outside the lines in the colouring book is out of the question.
And if it does happen and Blessing makes a face of dissatisfaction, tickling and cuddling always make her feel better.
Mable is Blessing’s best friend. The girls have similar qualities, which is why they enjoy spending time together and look after each other, despite their considerable age difference! But that is the way it is in Kasisi. The children start feeling responsible for their friends at an early age and develop a strong sense of caring, which is why they support each other at play and in school.
It is still Children’s Day in Kasisi – until the 16th of June, when we celebrate the Day of the African Child. Drop by and give the kids a platter of sweets to celebrate the occasion! For Blessing – you know – there has to be something blue.
We hope that Christopher’s death, which was an unexpected tragic event for the whole Kasisi, will kick off a chain reaction of good. Because of this, we started the Christopher Sakala Fund. With this fund, we support children being treated on the oncological ward at the hospital in Lusaka.
