Support Groups for Orphans and Vulnerable Children
On October 25, we started an OVC support group program at K2. Children attended the program. Our target group was for children who were recently unable to cope with the loss of their family members and child-headed households. The same group will attend for 3 sessions, meeting once per month. Each session will cover different topics. The topics covered in the first session included; “Who I am”, “My Hero”, and “River of Life”. We worked with the children to help develop their identity, life goals, role model and provide an opportunity for children to share about their life journeys, struggles and ways of coping. The river of life is used as a metaphor for life journey and how life continues even when the river changes, such as when parents pass away. The children were also encouraged to continue to focus on their educations, as we always believe that education is so important and it is the only way they can use to fight against the so many issues they are facing like that of poverty and any others.
