On June 1, the FLEX alumni community in Ashgabat celebrated International Children’s Day at the American Councils Office. This was a long-anticipated, first of its kind event for FLEX alumni and their children, nieces and nephews. Fifteen children and nine parents, or senior FLEX alumni, took part in the celebration that provided a diverse range of activities from which participants could choose; craft making and water coloring were especially popular. The participating children were eager not only to make the best crafts they could, but also to practice their English. This event is part of an ongoing effort to re-engage senior alumni and to create a larger variety of alumni activities.
