One of the mottos of all Interact clubs around the world is “serving above ourselves” and this event is a perfect depiction of our engagement towards promoting Rotarian values. Our visit to this orphanage from Strășeni reminded us of the significance of individual efforts that are apparently useless, but can make a visible change, if brought together. We prepared intensively the days before actually going to the orphanage elaborating a plan with all the activities dedicated to our special audience.
The ultimate purpose was to make those children feel important and cherished, inspiring and giving them faith in their own forces. That is why we proposed them a variety of occupations: board games, storytelling, treasure hunts, as well as others focusing on their communication skills and creativity. Finally, we offered them gifts, as a lasting memory of our visit and a promise of our return in the non-distant future.
