Nanning March 3 is the traditional song festival for the ethnic Zhuang people. On this day, everyone at Silver Lining changed into their ethnic wear and were happily singing and dancing. There were lots of activities too including folk song singing, flower ball tossing and bamboo trap dancing. We are so happy everytime our children have the opportunity to learn more about their traditional culture. Dahua Here in Dahua, we celebrated by cooking five-color glutinous rice balls! Our children washed and cut up the dishes, it was a blast! The rice stands for good fortune and harvest. We hope that everything will get better in May! Vietnam In China, we eat tangyuan, or glutinous rice balls, every January 15. Here in Vietnam though, our tangyuan festival is on March the third. At the Hanoi Rehabilitation Center, we made tangyuan’s of all colors: red, orange, yellow, purple. Everyone’s having such a great time and we can’t wait to do it again! Myanmar Due to the coup in Myanmar and Covid, our staff at the Yangon Center have evacuated our local students and arranged for them to go back to their hometowns. We hope the situation will get better soon, and our children can come back to the center for rehabilitation. While in the Family Village, we have prepared a lot of interesting classes for the children including athlete training and basketball. They’ve learned to do push-ups and sit-ups to get fit.

1. 2021 Medal settlement activity The Silver Lining School of Ho Yan held a Medal settlement activity in early February! The school has a tradition to give the children a reward sticker for merits in their studies like outstanding grades or positive behavior. On every term's Redemption Day, the children can use their stickers to redeem for small prizes and awards. We hope this project will motivate the students to put more effort into their studies and develop good habits. 2. Celebrating the New Year Together To prevent the pandemic's spread, the children at the Dahua Caring Center must spend the Lunar New Year at the Center this year. Although the children cannot return to visit their families back home, they had a worthy New Year holiday.

Also, the mothers at the Caring Center organized pandemic prevention workshops and fire drills for the children. Everyone has a happy and lively New Year! 3. Here Come the Online Classes Again The Lunar New Year also happened in February in Vietnam. The children of the Vietnam Silver Lining Rehabilitation Center had a plan to return to the Center on February 22 to begin their classes there right after the New Year holiday. Unfortunately, due to Hanoi's abrupt pandemic outbreak, we need to go back to online sessions and modify the class schedule. However, the instructors at the Vietnam Silver Lining are committed to their preparations. They will persist during the pandemic to assist the children with disabilities in their rehabilitation training.
