It has been a while since we updated our official blog and facebook page. This is due to the fact that we switched to using our website early this year. However, we would like to constantly be updating the blog for communication and new updates.
Our newly kids and youths P.E.A.C.E program has been fairing good and we have a total of 20 kids altogether. This program runs on a weekly basis every Saturday. Play, Eat, Appropriate mentorship, Critical skills, and Education are the meaning of initials P.E.A.C.E. which is synonymous with our entire organization meaning togetherness. This is a crucial program that is meant to play a critical role in the current and future lives of the kids we work with. Starting with playing, we have several sports including football and volleyball. We hope to role our more sports in the coming days to diversify as well as tap the unexploited talents as they develop.
After playing, the kids sit to cool down as they eat healthy snacks and fruits to help regain the lost energy as well as keep fit health wise. It is during this session that the kids connect with mentors who in return offer appropriate mentorship to these amazing kids. Mentors are supposed to be close people who take time to connect and understand the kids. We believe that mentors play a crucial role in the future life of any successful kids and youths.
After mentoring them, Critical life skills and are offered and includes communication skills. We believe communication is a vital tool towards a successful life. Other skills are administered to the kids in relation to their age.
The last portion is Education. This comprises of both formal and informal education. Education is believed to be the key to success. Under this part, we have hygiene, moral development, critical thinking as well as other crucial components.
All these are done in an atmosphere of love and respect, as well as an interesting and fun environment. Volunteers are the main backbone of this program as they help us run it by participating in person, resources , support and passing a word to their friends. Feel free to share this with your friend and if you would like to participate in anyway, get in touch with us.
