|Donegal TPSP is one of many Foróige Projects throughout the country.|
Foróige's purpose is
'To enable young people to involve themselves consciously and actively in their own development and in the development of society.'
Look who attended our Family Day in Oakfield Park in Raphoe to celebrate National Parents Day 2017! As part of the day and to promote family time, each of the families who attended received a pack which included a Family Time Jar which they now use to help come up with ideas on what activities they can do together as a family.
This is our Family Fun Jar!
'I am filled up with lots of fun things we can do together as a family.
Make sure you use me often!'.
The most important time is family time.
Story Sack Initiative in Carndonagh Library
|Donegal Teen Parents Support Programme have launched their Story Sack Iniative in Carndonagh Library. This iniative is aimed at highlighting the importance of Literacy by showing parents just how important it is to read to children from an early age. This is done through our 'story sack' which includes a story book, reading prop (such as a character from the storybook), details on all local libraries, a library card, nursery rhyme leaflet as well as tips and advice on how to introduce books to babies and toddlers.|

|The Donegal TPSP has been part of Feelgood Fortnight which took place in Co. Donegal during June and July 2015. Feelgood Fortnight is a positive mental health awareness campaign. The TPSP, which is based in Ballybofey, contributed to spreading the happiness by creating a 'happy tree' in the local woods where many people come to walk. They tied lots of happy positive thoughs, quotes and words on the trees and also attached blank pages for people to add their own thoughts. So far the TPSP has received fantastic feedback and the 'happy tree' is definitely doing what it set out to do i.e. to brighten up someone's day!
