I am delighted to support Mikros Dounias, this project is a wonderful development and will benefit all the children and adults involved. In May 2016 I arrived in Lesvos Solidarity, Pikpa, and set up the kindergarten there in response to the urgent needs of the children there. I had worked as a learning specialist, both children and adults for many years, and in recent years had worked in Ireland to develop quality in the Early Years sector, using the great Irish frameworks of Aistear and Síolta (www.aistearsiolta.ie).
I have been so excited to work alongside the camp team, other volunteers, the parents and especially our new educators, Katerina and Giannis, to initiate and help develop this innovative project, and I look forward to witnessing the many benefits that the children will experience.
As we say in Irish, on this journey ‘go n-eirí an bothar leat’! (May the road rise with you!)
