Each year the girls usually get to go on a trip to for example Isimila, Mama Iringa or Gentle Hills to mention some. Emilie Wilhemsen a volunteer from Norway took them to Gentle Hills Hotel last year on behalf of Anne Marie and herself and it was a day filled with fun! This year she also wanted to take them on a trip, but due to COVID 19 the girls are not allowed outside the center!
Therefore Emilie decided to make a day at the center instead, and what better day to choose than the Birthday of Brigitta? She's also the only center girls to have her birthday in September.
Sunday 12th of September was the day and Brigitta turned 9 years old! Among the guests invited were her big brother Daniel, something they both enjoyed! All the girls were at the center because of vacation.
They all got to watch a movie together to begin with. Then they all got to make a bracelet each with their names on it! Emilie had this with her from Norway and had already prepared a bag for each one with their name. They all enjoyed mixing big and small pearls in different colors. Agnes, Mina and Emilie helped everyone with the making. When everyone had done their bracelet, they got to make more. There was not a single pearl left.
A wonderful surprised was that Emilie had talked to Jovitha, the former nanny of the girls, so she came to greet them all. Everyone was so happy to see her again and she came with soap, bananas and candy as a gift to all the girls!
When it was time for cake, Brigitta got to give out one piece to everyone who attended the party! She also received some gifts that the birthday girl was very happy about.
Before ending the celebration we shared a good meal together! We got to enjoy chips omelet, chicken, salad, fruit and soda together.
Even though there was no trip this year, we all enjoyed the day to the fullest! The girls thanked Emilie for arranging the day for everyone.
