Wonderful, safe and healthy BOREDOM in the Home in Kasisi. Contrary to the recently popular curse “may you live in interesting times”, things are just fine in Kasisi.
Do you know how difficult it is sometimes to once again write “everything’s great with the kids, they’re getting straight A’s at school and they’re all growing healthily (because the vegetables vanish from the pantry in the blink of an eye)”? We torment Sister Mariola sometimes, saying that it’s impossible for everything to be good again in Kasisi.
And then we go there and we see that, yes, here it is just like in a wonderfully functioning Home – faces smiling, bellies full, heads full of knowledge, dreams fulfilled. Because the children have the sisters, aunties and you – friends in Poland who care about their future, send them warm thoughts and write them equally warm letters.
So we’re going to tell you about this wonderful, boring evening (but not a lazy one!). It’s learning time – the kids are studying diligently, doing homework and reading books. And while it sometimes takes the highest level of imaginative flair to convince them to open their books, as the playground is always the most interesting place, here the sisters and aunties are very consequential – duty first, pleasure second. The results can be seen from their performance at school. The reward? Every Friday and Saturday is an evening with a good film and interesting conversation. How about you recommend a cool, interesting film for them?
A fundraiser for school kits is underway on our homepage – there’s really not much left to successfully complete it and go school shopping for Kasisi. So what do you say, will you help us complete it this week? All it takes is a zloty or a post share and the backpacks will be filled with notebooks and books, providing a passport to the future for children who REALLY know it’s all thanks to you.
The metal cots and worn-out mattresses have lulled generations of Kasisi kids to sleep, but are now in desperate need of replacement.
Our dream is to make the babies’ bedrooms look like a truly homely, safe environment that is associated with warmth. Will you help us make this dream a reality?
