The 'Rosie May Children' as they now call themselves, have settled into the local school in Boossa and are also enjoying a dance lesson on Saturday mornings.
The garden too looked amazing. The Staff and Children have worked so hard growing plants.
We had fantastic time organising activities with the girls.

During November we visited our projects in Sri Lanka. The building of the Rosie May Home in Boossa is progressing well and getting to the finishing stages. The home looks fantastic set in the tropical surroundings.
We met with our Architect and Contractor to discuss some additions to the main building.
A Landscape Architect has also offered his services to develop a plan for the grounds and play area for the Children.
At present a perimeter wall is being constructed around the whole site to keep the Children secure.
We will then start to furnish the home and look forward to welcoming the first Children into the Rosie May Home in the New Year.
