The sewing circle “Children to Children” at the Sen Yolg’iz Emassan Foundation Training Center (“You Are Not Alone”). Here our children learn to sew by hand and on a sewing machine, to make various crafts and toys. Sewing evolves imagination, fine motor skills, attention and perseverance. The most important thing in this circle is that the toys made by our students are presented as gifts to the members of the houses of Mercy. We are confident that this good deed contributes to the development of empathy in children, teaches them care and sympathy.
Since 2003, about 3000 children from low-income families and houses of Mercy, as well as children with special needs, have been trained at the Training Center of the You’re Not Alone Foundation. There are classes in various school subjects and personal development.
The National Centre for the Social Adaptation of Children (NCSAC), which provides assistance to children with special needs, operates a sensory room. This room is equipped with a fabulous magical world that allows special children to learn about the world through the play of light and color, different sounds, smells, tactile sensations. Modern sensory equipment affects the organs of vision, hearing, smell and touch. The room presents simulations of various animals, light and sound panels, toys and luminous objects. Sensory therapy improves the work of the child’s sensory organs and mental functions, and develops the cognitive sphere.

In June 2017, with the financial support of the Foundation, French cardiac surgeons performed open-heart surgery on the baby. The surgery lasted 5 hours and was successful.
Two years later, Abdullah’s condition improved markedly. The disease was left behind and only a scar on his chest reminds him of the surgery.
