Share the love of Christ as you teach and lead activities in classes and make home visitations at a minority orphan school. Bring food and gifts to children and hold a Christmas party for students and teachers who have NEVER experienced Christmas.
It is a patriarchal society so the male child is valued more than the female children. When a child is not registered, they are not allowed to go to school and are thus sent into the fields to work. Many parents have left the area to go to work in other parts of the country so the children either take care of themselves or sometimes by grandparents. These are called the left-behind children.
Location is in a dry, mountainous, impoverished, minority area which has its own language and culture.
The school is in a dry, rural, mountainous, minority area. There will be transportation to and from the school but when doing home visitations, there is a potential of walking mountainous, rocky roads for an hour or two with the students back to their homes.
Equipment to Bring:
Supplies for leading Christmas themed classes and Christmas parties. Musical instrument could be helpful.
