The power of one- Week 1 (Summer activity)
Stepping into the realm of crowds, markets, noises, cars and buildings together with their loved ones were more than children could ask for. Parents/family members took the initiative in completing their first task during the break. Most parents and their children gathered around Centenary Farmer’s Market, Thimphu and went for shopping. Children felt the textures of the vegetables, could witness the shapes in real, naming each as they recognized and interacting with the shopkeepers. A first-hand experience for parents to shop together with their children and other parents who share a common goal of inclusion. “We need to give each other the space to grow, to be ourselves, to exercise our diversity. We need to give each other space so that we may both give and receive such beautiful things as ideas, openness, dignity, joy, healing and inclusion”- Max de Pree. A great thumbs up to the parents for their initiative and appreciation to the shopkeepers for their cooperation.
