We have a socialization program to prepare orphan children for adoption to foreign couples, readying them for the big change in moving to the West and living in a different culture. We take them on excursions to hotels, the airport, and restaurants and have learning activities with them at their center, in addition to teaching them English. Every month a few new children are adopted overseas, and this program has proven successful toward the children's adjustment.
Here we are taking some orphans from Bahn Vieng Ping Orphanage to a zoo, accompanied by 7 students from local universities who volunteer their time. We topped off the zoo visit with lunch and ice cream.
