RunForFunds 2007 - D'Joy Children's Centre

It's the time of the year when I bring up RunForFunds to everybody's attention. As I have mentioned earlier, the SuperFriends of RunForFunds will be running the Standard Chartered Bank Marathon and will be raising funds for several projects of which D'Joy Children Centre is our main focus this year.
So anyway, mirroring the RunForFunds latest blog entry, we would like to showcase D'Joy Children Centre in the form of a pictorial.
Again, I would like to ask all readers and fellow bloggers to plug this on your respective blogs or simply via word-of-mouth and come get to know D'Joy Children Centre as well as the RunForFunds project.
If there is anyone who wishes to make a contribution (monetary and/or volunteer services), please drop me a note and I will link you up with the right people.

1.  Entrance to D'Joy.  Level 3 @ Block 1, Maude Road.

2.  Main hall.
Like I shared, the place is extremely clean and tidy, credit to the staff of D'Joy.

3.  Door to classroom.
If you look carefully, the place needs a fresh lick of paint.
The door frame needs some repair too (and the kid needs to get out of my way ....hahah !!)

4.  Classroom facilities
are extremely basic.

5.  Main activity (dining) hall.
From what I understand, most of the furniture has not been changed since Feb 2001 when the centre opened.

6.  Mini library section.
I feel new books and kid's magazines will be a welcome addition.
I wish I could take more pics that tell a better and more compelling story of the important role that D'Joy plays to these kids in the neighbourhood despite having basic facilities.

But alas, I'm still struggling with the use of my idiot-proof camera :-)

I'd encourage you to visit D'Joy to check it out and explore how you can render assistance.
