This program aims to introduce self care, caring for others, the environment through acts of kindness.

 

Activities: responding to love languages, community gardening, recycling, community care for those in need or lonely

GENDER FAIRNESS ACTIVITIES

Gender fairness has been a pursuit of Butterfly House as the community and our history is rather patriarchal with obvious distinctions between the roles of men and woman.   This is a role reversal activity. A young man is doing the nails and massaging the hands of a young lady. It causes a lot of giggles but the message is very clear and well understood and provides a great introduction to deal with other gender specific behaviour.
