As part of our stimulation programmes, shopping outings take place every once a year. Children get a fair amount of money that they can use to buy their needs for example, clothing, shoes and accessories. This programme also gives each child a great opportunity to feel loved, cared for and attended to. They enjoy these outings as cottages, going to their choice of city. They get to know places and to be exposed in budgeting and choosing what they want. In their evaluations they noted that such opportunities are very rare from where they are coming and that they are eye opener. Shopping outings that we offer to our children play a very important role in healing the emotional scars from the past experiences where no one cared.
