The Memory Project 2023

The Memory Project gets its name from its first intention: to provide handmade, heartfelt portraits as special memories to children in orphanages. It works to promote intercultural understanding and kindness between children around the world.

Form 2 Student Writes Challenging Poem

Delphian's Form 1 and 2 poetry seminars are designed to introduce students to the joyous, powerful, and magical writing style that is poetry.

Roni Akilov, 2020

"The staff members look at us as young adults and not as children, and they treat us as if they were family relatives. They help us learn how to positively lead our own lives, they help us learn from our mistakes, they let us own our education, and they don't judge by what we want to do or be."
