It’s been a while since the last time I told you events about Dani. We have managed to sort out future plans, and that has been positive.
Dani attends Mekanisa school since last month, and this is Tesfaye’s recount:
How are you doing? I am sorry for my delay to respond immediately, that is till I will get full information about Dan’s class situations. The past days there have been letter communication between the special need school and Sele Enat orphanage and we have also physically appeared two times to explain about Dani and to see the environment. The psychologist as well come to see Dani and he has suggested that the class will be helpful for him and to progress him to the next level based on his understanding, activities and improvement in the class. The class include both activity of daily living (washing, brushing teeth, toilet use…..), skills (writing, reading alphabet….) and sport class. From the time we told Dani that Roberto has working hard for you to start class. His first word to tell in the compound, for children, staffs, volunteers and for guests come to visit he always saying that “I am going to start class”. And not only Dani but also we all become happy about his class.
On March 17, 2015, Dani has started his first class in Makenisa school in one of the special needs class, Zelalem ,Yifru (driver),Belaynesh(care giver) and me accompanied him to the school. While he get there Dani gave his usual warm greeting and happy face to his new teachers, they respond they are very happy to meet him as their student and they provide place to sit and continued to ask him and listen his words. Then Selam (one of his teacher, you could see her in the picture) give for Zelalem and me to read and fill duties and responsibilities to be expected and done for Dani.
Specifically the school didn’t ask regular payment at the moment except to provide the requested materials and his transportation regularly.
I hope it looks good place for Dani at the moment, it will be the place he enjoy and learn more from it.
So, Kristiina, Dani’s physiotherapy is continuing and we all expect improvements progressively.
