The word this weekend is nurture. Everyone deserves to be nurtured.
care for and encourage the growth or development of.
the process of caring for and encouraging the growth or development of someone or something.
Imagine growing up without parents or family encouraging you and helping you learn. From birth, many people immediately start learning from their parents. They help push you and lead you to crawl for the first time, learn how to count to ten and even tie your shoes. Think about your upbringing and life so far? How different would it be without your parents or family support?
We help guide more than 450 children annually who live in conflicted areas to lift themselves up from poverty to prosperity through education. We fill in the role of parents, family and teachers and help nurture them to grow into the best version of themselves. Through the safety, security and stability that our schools offer, we bring a new vigor to the student’s lives so that they are free to dream, grow and continue in their personal resurrection until they are able to independently provide for themselves.
Take a look at your own life – how often do you experience nurturing behavior? Has someone made a positive, encouraging post on your social media today? Has someone told you that they love you and they are proud of you? Imagine being twelve years old and never hearing someone tell you that they love you or providing any reassurance about the direction your life is heading. We help nurture these children to grow into independent, confident adults. Nothing is more rewarding than watching their transformation after a little love, nurturing and education.
