October, the month in which Senescence is celebrated!

Educational and early care programs for Romany children from the village of Telechiu, provided by Ruhama Foundation partnering with the City Hall of Țețchea Village and the Local School, involved seniors from Bihor county in spending the National Day of Elderly at the Toy Library. The day of 1st October was registered, in 1990s by UN, as International Day of Elderly People in the world’s calendar. In a celebration and relaxing atmosphere, elderly people from Oradea – collaborators and beneficiaries of Ruhama Foundation – became games instructors for one day for the children from Telechiu.

Toy Library is one of the several programs that take place in the Romany’s community from Telechiu, giving children and their families the chance to borrow toys, puzzles, games and books, all of them designed to support children’s development and their way of learning through games. The objects that compose the library can be borrowed and used at home. To some extent, the toy library creates a possibility for extremely poor families to spend time together by playing together – parents and children. Children who have access to more toys are challenged and stimulated intellectually: their imagination, thought and creativity will get developed.
