Monika Geibel, the mother of an Ark child, has been helping us with all her heart to create and set up fundraising events. Now she is also donating her time to raise awareness for children with special needs. She planned and held a workshop for elementary school children (Burghtschool, Amsterdam) to give them a chance to get familiar with and understand the world of a child with challenges better. She created an interactive lesson with videos, games and time to ask and answer questions. The feedback of the children as well as the parents and teachers was great. Many of kids said that they realized that “children with special needs just want to be treated like everyone else, because they are just like everyone else – one of kind.” Monika, in cooperation with Ark, will be offering more of these workshops.
