It’s often been said that it takes a village to raise a child, and Miles for Smiles seeks to strengthen that support base through monthly parenting workshops held at the Urafiki Center grounds. Parents, grandmothers and other caregivers attend. The discussions reinforce the caregiver’s responsibilities in relation to the child’s physical and emotional needs. Basic disease-prevention, health and hygiene topics are also addressed.
Parents and guardians are kept abreast of the students’ progress as well as upcoming events and goals for the Center.
