Phuket’s Children’s Day event for Life Home Project kids

Phuket’s Children’s Day event for Life Home Project kidsSaturday 11th January 2014 saw Phuket’s most fashionable & only all day beach club, BIMI, host a special Children’s Day event for kid’s from Phuket’s Life Home Project, a shelter for mothers who are HIV positive and their children where they can live safely in a supportive community.

The event saw 30 children from the shelter play beach games with students from British International School. They were also able to meet The Rose of Tralee International Festival’s Dublin Rose, Claire Lennon, who was on hand to present them with some gifts.

The Rose of Tralee International Festival is one of Ireland’s largest and longest running festivals, which celebrated its 54th year in 2013. The heart of the festival is the selection of the Rose of Tralee which brings young women of Irish descent from around the world to County Kerry, Ireland for a global celebration of Irish culture. Phuket’s Children’s Day event for Life Home Project kids24 year old Claire Lennon, chosen as the Dublin Rose, currently works for a public relations agency, where she’s learning about all aspects of communications.

The qualities of a Rose are defined by the words of the song The Rose of Tralee and crystallised by the young woman who is chosen as the Rose of Tralee at the end of the International Festival in County Kerry, Ireland every August.

A Rose reflects the intelligence, compassion and independence of modern Irish women. Over the years the Roses have mirrored a changing Ireland and the definition of Irishness that is celebrated by so many different people around the world. Roses have come to reflect the widening of Irish borders and the embracing of global diaspora in a positive and refreshing way.

Phuket’s Children’s Day event for Life Home Project kidsA Rose represents the collective aspirations, social responsibilities and ambitions of young women from a variety of communities and backgrounds, united by their desire to celebrate their Irish heritage.
