Abstract

Orphans are considered a minority and they should be given a greater emphasis so that they do not feel left out and can build their own lives without a sense of humility.This does not mean that the orphans should be pampered instead they should be given the confidence and motivation to strive for success in later life.Humility among orphans can be associated with interpersonal and intrapersonal intelligences.This study aims to evaluate the impact of problem-solving activity treatment based on the interpersonal and intrapersonal intelligences.46 students from two orphanages were involved as the treatment group. The research design used was a one-group pretest-posttest design applied through a combination of quantitative and qualitative approaches.Enrichment activities that provided interpersonal and intrapersonal skills as evidenced in this study should be carried out regularly at orphanages. Our study has proven that orphans‟ rights to learn cannot be neglected and „no child left behind „policy needs to be carried through by everybody involved with orphans‟ well-being. Teachers and carers need to be trained to use these enrichment activities at their orphanages to help maximize the orphans‟ potentials.
