Whats On

Blythswood Update – September 19th 2019

Daniel Centre

2 new lads have arrived.  Florin comes on the back of 20 psychiatric sessions and is already causing some conflict in the Centre.  Alin is very likeable but from a criminal family and has to be watched closely for that reason.  These are the challenges continually facing the Centre.

Two more candidates will be interviewed soon, and this will bring the Centre to full capacity if they are accepted.

Ionuz, who kept injuring himself because of his epilepsy, has much improved and hopes to resume Nursing School.  He gets the keys of a studio apartment on 19th September with the right-to-buy in two years’ time.

The Christianity Explored course started for the residents on Sunday 15th September.


Talita Kum

Talita Kum opened for the new school year on 16th September.  They still need a teacher for 3rd grade.

The theme of the opening ceremony was “Why should I read?”

Talita Kum 1 is only licensed for 40 children, so Adrian is transferring some of the Grade 3 and Grade 4 children to Talita Kum 2 (which can take more children) and change its licence from Grade 3 to Grade 8 in order to take more Grade 1 and Grade 2 children into Talita Kum 1.

The funds have now been found to take on a consultant and allow the application to go ahead to procure EU funding for the Talita Kum 3 and Talita Kum 4 projects.
