Expanding our connections

Today, we had a very interesting meeting at Family Works with Ian Tomkins. It was interesting to discover that social work principles are similar in Sweden and New Zealand. We look forward to developing a deeper co-operation in the future.

Presenting Eva’s annual course

The name of the course is CMC Children Massaging Children and CMC for Health Professionals. The people you see in the pictures have been at Kawai Purapura in North Shore Albany in Auckland, and here Eva Scherer had her annually course. On the first day we had theory and on the second day we were all ready practicing children massaging children. It was two really interesting days and we learned so much. 


 During my internship here in Child Connection Trust, one of my tasks is to reach out to social media. I do my internship here for 15 weeks and I am so exiting to work with Eva and her volunteers here in this organization. This is also a great opportunity for me to make comparison with my home country which is Sweden.
Some brief summary of my background with children are among other things: practice on social services with foster care and kindergarten. I have also worked with children with special needs in Norway. My nephews are a big part of my life. They and all other children are my greatest teachers.
