Sports Program at Streets

By 5 years ago
Categories Pokhara

Recently we have been noticing that some of the older boys at the Streets Rehabilitation Home have been try ing to burn off some enery by being rough with each other, and causing a few bruises between them.  We needed to find another way to help the kids channel their energy and help make their home environment a little more harmonious.

Now after the kids have finished their homework in the morning our volunteers take them to a park nearby.  The kids get to enjoy some sporting activities for about 45 minutes each morning before breakfast and it seems to be working.  The kids are going off to school much happier and the volunteers are getting their morning exercise by chasing the kids around.
