Recently our young students spent time exploring service professions with hands-on activities and dress-up play. Exposure to the world of work may inspire a possible career but more importantly at this young age it provides opportunities for students to explore the world around them, encourage interest in their community, and appreciate the people that work to help them grow and learn.

Community engagement gives children a sense of belonging and helps to build their identity. Being a member of a community sends a powerful message to children, one that says: You are important. You belong. You make a difference. It’s a message that holds the strength to empower every child in the world!

Thank you for your ongoing support and commitment to breaking the cycle of poverty and giving our young students the foundation for a better future.
