A lot of the children in the home are left behind by their relatives.

After implementing the service project, we intend to make these kids feel happy about life regardless of their family issues.

Preparation



Identify service and learning goals and objectives
  • goals: to make them happy
  • objectives: to entertain them by organising activities that they might enjoy just for them
  • service: It will reduce the amount of money used for the children’s entertainment making more money to spend to improve and maintain the place.
  • learning: the importance of “paying forward”

Draft community action plans

Why?
So that kids feel happy about life regardless of their family issues. It wouldn’t affect them as much and they will soon accept it and will be able to live with it.

How? 
We will go to the orphanage and carry out the games we organised for them.

Who? 
Team members(Dhruti, Fathiah, Jemaimah, Sharifa, Sarah) and community partners(Children Aid’s Society)

When? 
Term 3

What resources needed?
Things used in the games organised (string, water guns etc.)

What learning outcomes?
We will learn how convenient our lives are compared to the children in the orphanage.
