Since my last visit to the Middle East a year ago, I have been slowly working on developing a
package that can be given to Syrian Refugee families, so that they would be able to continuously
develop their children educationally, even if they do not attend school.
Last year, while visiting Syrian Refugee families, I saw that many of their children did not attend
school, because of the lack of resources in their host country. This situation disturbed me and so
when I returned to South Africa I started thinking about how I could play a role to improve this
situation. I realised that parents do have the time and that the family times could be used. The idea
is to by way of games and fun activities empower families to develop the educational skills of their
children so that even while not attending school, the children would still be stimulated to develop
and therefore would be able to function in society as educated people.
What a success! We just again saw how faithful our God is as He provided, gave us strength and carried us through this challenge. We had such a wonderful stay in Maasai land, connecting with its incredible people and being amazed by the beauty of nature.
Most of our time there was spent on building a kitchen for a South African missionary that runs a community development project in a small village in the south of Kenya.
