Winter Holiday Charity Visits: A BIG THANK-YOU FROM MAŽOJI GUBOJA, VILNIUS ORPHANAGE NO.3 and ANTAVILIAI ELDERLY HOME!

During the last week before the Winter break, our Grades K-6 visited Mažoji Guboja, an outlet for disabled craftspeople for holiday presents (www.guboja.lt). The kids visited the center, met and greeted the people that work there, and bought gifts made by them. The students spent 650EUR in the center to buy beautiful crafts. By buying these souvenirs-gifts from the center we support them financially (they are able to continue purchasing materials and make crafts, and emotionally (they feel needed and appreciated when their made crafts are bought). We have also talked about more projects together in the future.

THE GIVING TREE presents to Vilnius Orphanage No. 3 were delivered on Tuesday by Grade 5 & 7 students who also performed there. A big thank-you to all students, staff and parents who supported this traditional project of AISV to meet orphanage kids personal needs.

Antaviliai Elderly Care Home is always very welcoming and happy to see AISV students to perform and share the treats the money for which was raised by Lower School student council. Christmas cards and decorations made by Grade 11 IB DP students from all Lithuania during the 6th IB DP Convention of Lithuania this past weekend were also brought to the elderly by Grade 5 & 8 students who also performed pieces from the AISV Winter Concert to the elderly.
