Those who were done could also do some art & crafts/ drawing and coloring with teachers-volunteers: Miriam, Emily, Ellen and Danka. Part of the workshop was hands-on-experience of the smoothie making from local banana and lemon. Usually students, during previous art & crafts classes, could make their own popcorn and when they clean up they can get reward – nuts, like a healthy snack.

The Angel Center is located at the Top Side Koror at village Bital Ked/Ngermerang, IDID Hamlet and on Tue, Thu and Sun from 2-4p.m. There is a covered playground as well so it is possible also for adults as well for kids to exercise on monkey bars.
