On April 22nd, to commemorate Global Youth Service Day and Earth Day, a group of alumni from the Youth Exchange and Study program (YES) visited the Children’s Orphanage in Tirana. Working with the children, the YES alumni planted flowers, rosebushes, and trees in the orphanage’s front garden. Younger children meanwhile drew postcards related to Earth Day.
Ambassador Arvizu stopped by at the event to greet the children and observe their work. He talked to them about the importance of Earth Day. He asked everyone to remember Earth Day by, even if just for a day, thinking about our planet.
