We are so happy to announce that our new community daycare, the David Center, is now open, and every day it provides a safe space for the youngest TST and local village kids to learn and play! Named for our founder Bekka’s late father, David Ross Russell, the David Center is located on the same piece of land as our office, and Happy Family Children’s Village.
The David Center is attended by a mix of residential TST children, fee-paying community kids, and children on scholarships from our Family Preservation Program. The impact that this new facility has already had in our community can’t be overstated. With their kids safe and cared for during the day, struggling parents finally have the freedom to create sustainable businesses, and pull themselves out of poverty.
Our deepest thanks to the Plantevin family, whose generous donation enabled the David Center to be built.
