10/11/2012: This afternoon was full of activities in Minh Tam. They started with a cartoon to teach the children about brushing their teeth as was done last week in Truyen Tin, followed by a small control practice. Then Jeff and his team started the workshop “read and understand for children”. The goal is to make them enjoy reading and keep them a bit away from the TV. In the meantime, Tam established the communications with its smart phones and laptop between foster parents and foster children.

The girl, Tuong Van, keeps a lotus bud and a pineapple made with candies in her arms. The nuns and the older children make them and they will be sold during the Tet holiday in a large pagoda in the city.
