Image-Shaping The Next Generation

Children eating at party

We started off the year with a bang:  Instead of a Christmas party, this year we held a New Year's Party for the children at at the Upper Mellon Street, Upper Beccle Street and Upper Philip Street in the Wellington community. This party provided the children with a balanced meal - which they normally don't eat in their homes - due to the low income earned by their parents. The children were treated with dignity.  Each child received a bottled drink - considered a special treat.

The party also gave the children the opportunity to socialize in an atmosphere of peace and friendship. The atmosphere was one of peace and respect for each other. This occasion gave each kid the opportunity to relate well with one another. The children were taught that no matter their religion or ethnicity, they are all one family. This was expressed additionally by sharing food and dancing together.

The party further helped the children demonstrate their social and academic talents through dancing, reading and giving short speeches. Boldness to demonstrate talent is a key to success. This program provided the platform for such demonstration. 

Because of your support we were able to host this image-shaping party. What an investment in these precious children!  Thank you for helping to make this party possible!   

Events like these contribute to the shaping of the minds of these future leaders - helping them realize that they are special and valuable.  We would not have been able to do this without your support!

We hope you realize that you are very special to us and that the kids appreciate you!  Thank you and thank you and thank you!
