Christmas may have reindeer games, but New Year's day has its games too. At least it does at Akany Avoko. After a special "European style" breakfast prepared by the volunteers and a nice lunch prepared by the children and the staff, the kids had a lovely afternoon to relax and play games.
Check out some of their choices for the first games of the year.

|Still more kisatady. Sorry, it is picturesque.|
|Put two nails in the ground and instant marble game or kanety.|
|A crucial shot in a game of kanety.|

|Storytelling, puppetry and geology all in one great game. Tantara uses stones as family members that act out everything from eating to arguing.|
