An orphan's smile is worth the whole WORLD was the slogan which gathered all Epoka University staff and students together for a very sensitive project. It started on the 14th of December organized by Sensitive Society Club, Women’s Leadership Club, Innovative Enterprises Club and Student Council which collaborated together to achieve a goal, make orphans SMILE .
Three baskets for collecting donations were built by architecture students of GREEN Club and were put at the entrance of A – Building. Donations were in the type of clothes, toys and money. After one week all donations were selected and packed carefully according to age groups. Eatables, toys, school materials and baby diapers were bought with money donations.
The project was finalized in two parts. The first one consists of a visit to Durrës orphanage on Monday, December 28. Each child was given a toy, candies and cookies. Students spent time playing with children, sharing love trying to enter inside their world and make them feel that there are people who do care about them. Along with toys given to the children, baby diapers were donated to the orphanage as well.
The second part was held on the premises of Epoka campus on Tuesday, December 29. Twenty two orphan children from Fushë Kruja region were hosted at Epoka University where they passed an entertaining day with our staff playing several games, singing, dancing traditional folk music accompanied with a small cocktail. After having lunch, presents which contained clothes, toys and school materials, as well as packages of provisions for their families were delivered to each of them. Children claimed that they had a great and special day at Epoka, and the director of Orphans Association of the region was very thankful for this initiative.
