We always encourage our children to give back to the community in any way they can. At the end of March, Gideon, Jonathan, Joseph, Jacob, William, Bernard, Wisdom, Christiana, Mary, Emefa, and Comfort participated in a service event in their neighborhood. The teenagers collected toys, clothes, soccer balls, and various other items to distribute to children who are in need. The group traveled to a local orphanage in Abrankese and presented all the toys and clothes they had collected to all the ecstatic children.
The teens all had huge smiles on their faces because they were so excited to be helping other kids in unfortunate circumstances. All of the children living in the orphanage gathered outside in awe as the group unloaded the things they had brought for them. The group also left some spending money for the orphanage so they could buy essential food necessities like rice.
Serving and helping others is a universal act that provides the helper with a sense of gratitude and contentment.
We want to instill these feelings into the kids in our care so they will always remember the importance of helping others. We can’t wait to do more events like this in the future!
