My name is Jean Lindsay and I come from New Zealand. This is my third visit back to Wat Opot, the last time was in 2009. Whilst planning my trip, I wanted to include some craft work that I could do with the children, something they would enjoy doing but also would be able to sell in their on-site craft shop. The children make some money. The children can make some money for themselves if their goods sell and therefore learn the value of money as well as other life skills for when they grow and leave here.
I was so impressed with the enthusiasm in joining in with the project I organized for them. I brought some lovely Crystal balls and beads and the creativity they showed was amazing. Even the very young designed and made hanging ornaments, then proudly put the Wat Opot tags on them with their names on the back. Later we hung them in the craft shop.
We took them out into the Sun and they loved seeing all of the Rainbow colors floating around.
May Light and Rainbows continue to surround this Special Place.
