“Always remember to find happiness in small things because that will make your day fulfilling. A Sunday morning worth spending!”
~ Volunteer-teacher Emar Viloria
It’s was the round two of fun board games with our PEARLS Scholars at Helping Land!
For our After School Program activity this Sunday morning, the day started with an opening prayer, then followed by sing and dance with the kids and volunteers and finally, the feeding time!
After the feeding, it was board games day once again with our PEARLS Scholars. We knew that they had fun last week so that’s we’ve decided to extend their enjoyment!
The volunteers once again played tactically with the kids. They were all thinking hard while having fun! Surely, they never got bored playing the chess, Dama, Snakes and Ladders, Stacko/ Jenga, Dominos and such.
Before the children went home, toys donated by our food sponsors were given to them.
One of our regular and hardworking volunteers shared his experience to us for this Sunday morning. He is Teacher Ram and a volunteer of Project Pearls After School Program for more than a year already! Every Sunday morning, he always makes time to be with the kids of Helping Land.
Here’s what he said, “After School Program last Sunday was full of fun and surprises. The event started with the preparation of the breakfast soup and salad sponsored by Art Relief Mobile Kitchen. After the volunteer’s orientation, the kids entered the courtyard with full of enthusiasm and looked for their thrones. We started the event with a prayer to give thanks for all the blessings that the kids will receive that day. Followed by an energizer, the weekly dance segment. The After School Program event will not be completed without it, because everyone loves to see the kids and volunteers grooving.
After all the weekly ritual, the scholars remained to learn and have fun while playing educational board games. To sum it all, it was a great new experience for us, the volunteers, because once again we became an instrument of joy, hope and love. Always remember to find happiness in small things because that will make your day fulfilling. A Sunday morning worth spending!”
Thank you so much for the love, Teacher Ram. May you never get tired being an angel to kids in need.
And thank you for this day’s sponsor, ART RELIEF MOBILE KITCHEN!
Thank you, too volunteers!
Let’s all be the start of change what we wanted the world to be.
