Connect orphans across Pan-America
1) We are going to visit orphanages in every country we go through; a total of 14.
2) We will launch a gift relay race: We will take hand-crafted presents from kids from one country to orphanages of another. For instance: Guatemalan kids get handmade gifts from Mexican kids. Then Guatemalan kids will make presents and send them to Honduran orphanages etc.
We will also talk to kids about the creators of the gifts which they just got: their cultures, what they do, what language they speak and countries where they live.
Eventually, we will show them a video with a "Hello"; message.
3) Bring needs with raised money
We are going to buy stuff which each particular orphanage really needs after agreeing on them with their managers.
4) Set up celebrations
Organize games and contests
By taking a part in the gift relay race, kids will understand that they are not
alone; on the contrary, they have a big family
We want to raise awareness about orphans all over the world, hopefully increasing
their chances of becoming a child of loving parents.
We already have some experience.
