What we do
Serving Our World has several projects planned and in the process, we also work along side National Organizations to build safer communities for those affected in these rural areas.
Through experience, planning and careful research, we identify areas where change can be made through a little sacrifice and great vision. We visit these areas and assess the local needs and we work with the people and other volunteers to build a more sustainable life and future, by providing necessary skills training, education and the required facilities.
We spend quality time with the children, playing with them, reading to them and interacting to learn better how and what their individuals needs are so we can customize a response that will meet their needs and help to build a strong foundation for the future of each child.
Through different activities we share with them such things as balloons, ice cream or something fun to show them we care. Things that we so easily take for granted but to them it is like Christmas. At the end, when we are about to leave, they tug on us, their tiny arms wrap around our legs and their little hands pull at the bottom of our sweater, they beg us not to go, not to leave them, their smile becomes a reminder to us that what we sow into their lives means the world to them. They begin to ask and wonder when will they ever experience again the fun and love they enjoyed from the time we spent together, their eyes desperately communicating their desire to be loved, for 5 more minutes of our time, for one more hug or simply for a promise that we will return. For us it is one day out of our self consumed busy week, but for them it is a moment of hope, as they begin to feel valued and treasured from a simple thing such as a hug and the knowing that there is someone in this word that wants to be with them ad wants to love them. We serve only through being who we are and that is often all it takes to make an impact so great.
Clinics Providing medical care, thus benefiting the whole community. In most cases, when living on the outskirts, the distance and lack of transportation to major cities to receive the medical help makes it difficult to get the proper care. Here is where SOW endeavors to continue to expand in order to provide those in need with accessible care.
Weekly outreaches that provide balanced meals, all day activities and educational opportunities. A fun filled day of getting to know the children and interacting with the community, thus providing an arena to better meet their needs.
Pre-schools Yes, everyday in designated areas, SOW is teaming up with others to fund and provide what is needed to help lay a foundation for a life that loves to learn and also to provide meals and loving care in a fun activated environment.
Resources In working and communicating with those in need or leaders of communities and partnering with like minded organizations, Serving Our World desires to customize programs and provide the resources to help whole communities and individuals to grow and become more self sustaining.
