First visit to the Orphan homes.

The interns were given an opportunity to work with both Precious Gift and Vision Home. On the 25th of June, they made their first official visit to both homes.

At approximately 10am, they started their activities with the Precious Gift's kids. There were about 17 children living in the shelter. The kids were really energetic and excited to join into the activities. The interns started the day with the game Balloon, also called Gabedi in Tamil(the kids thought them).

Four strings were lined up on the field and the kids were divided into 2 groups, the defender and the attacker(No one was attacked in the makings :D).

The defenders will stand on the lines while attackers will try to get passed them until the last line. Both children and interns were having a lot of fun.
Then, they head into the house for the next activity. Intern, Siang Yee was in charge of conducting the session. He took what was thought to the intern in the 2 days Junior Coaching Programme and explained about the modules to the kids.

 The interns had a little bit of difficulties controlling the kids as they were very energetic and had a lot of opinions. However, they were really fun to be around with.

Everyone was given a little souvenir. They were really excited about that part.

The interns had to leave at about 11.30am because it was time for the children's lunch. 

They then head to Vision Home at 2pm.

 The interns and children each introduced themselves to hopefully break the ice as the kids there seem a little bit more shy than the kids in Precious Gift.

They were a lot more outgoing than the interns thought. One of the kids even started break dancing and doing a head spin! He's about 12 years old. The interns had to conduct the activities using Malay as most of them do not understand English very well.

They were then asked to draw whatever that's on their mind. Some of the kids had some difficulty of understanding because they were too young. The youngest kid at the age of 6.

There were a height measuring drawing on the wall. That's intern Theresa's favourite.

Paul: Baguussssss!

The intern then had to end their activities for the day. It was and inspiring day. The interns had an eye opening day. They all agree that they were really motivated to make an impact in the children's life in these 3 months.
