On March 28th, some of us from our Heart-Mind Index subcommittee group at Frog Hollow attended the HMI celebration held at Mount Pleasant Neighborhood House. It was a time where participating organizations come together to share their implemented projects and stories. Projects included story-telling, crafts with children, games, circle time, describing emotions, etc.
The Vancouver Heart-Mind Early Years Initiative was a project of Windows of Opportunity in collaboration with the Dalai Lama Center for Peace and Education. Funding for this initiative was provided by Success by 6 and BC Ministry of Children and Family Development.
Here are just some of the projects that other participating organizations presented:

At the end of the celebration, each of us were given a copy of the community photo journal that was compiled by Project Manager, Helen Davidson, and by the Dalai Lama Center team. It contains photos and stories from each organization of how they implemented their project. It is a wonderful keepsake for us to share our memories.
