This year’s Thanksgiving fundraiser was in support of building the first Sensory Garden in Macedonia, that will serve the students and teachers at Skopje’s Dimitar Vlahov School for the Sight Impaired. The garden will be an outdoor classroom where small groups of students work with teachers to develop all of their senses to the best of their ability. It will also be built with sustainability in mind, minimizing the burden on the school’s existing staff, infrastructure and budget.
