«Let’s have fun!»

Besides, every participant took part in interactive section of the program, in different contests and quests and even in research activities.

«Way to success»

After summer vacations Francis Landivar continued his seminars at the “Book” library on 55, Svetlanskaya st. On October, 7 conversation was about emotional intelligence. Many people believe that intelligence and talents are very important, but even very high IQ not always guarantees success in life. Francis suggested that everybody would think about the fact that successful people not always have the highest IQ. The most important things in almost every successful business are passion and perseverance, and everybody agreed with this statement.

On October, 21 director of the Charity partnership “Ruki pomoschi” Francis Landivar during his seminar “Positive thinking” within the program “Way to success” discussed with the participants how this kind of thinking and optimistic attitude influence our life. All together they came to conclusion that every person chooses by himself either to be happy or not, and that negative thoughts lead to constant unhappiness. “Let’s not create unhappiness around us. – invoked Francis. If your heart is filled with fear, worry and hate then there is no place for love and happiness in it. “You can change whatever you want, said Francis. – Be a better version of yourselves!” By choosing to be happy every day we can make our life such as we desire it to be.

On October, 28 during the regular meeting with Francis Landivar within the program “Way to success” at the “Book” library the conversation about positive thinking was continued. Everybody agreed that sometimes it’s very difficult to feel happy because of many problems and it seems that only because of our problems we are unhappy. But without problems there is no development, they teach us to make decisions, make us wiser and more experienced. That’s why a root of unhappiness is not in problems themselves but in our attitude to them – that was the conclusion of this meeting.

«English corner»

On Saturday, October, 7 our wonderful volunteers carried out the first after Summer English corner at the “Book” library on 55, Svetlanskaya st. Little participants of the program became acquainted with the English names of things that surround them in their houses. They learned such words as: table, radio, chair, carpet, armchair, mirror, picture, TV, wardrobe, sofa And for better memorizing kids watched funny video and played “Crocodile”. After class young students got an assignment to draw their rooms and write the names of the furniture in their drawings.
