The academies are more than a safe haven for the children in La Limonada. While we believe it is important to provide a beautiful alternative to the negative influences of gang-ridden streets, we also want to develop the children into flourishing young adults, poised to be the future leaders of a peace-filled community.
One important aspect of our curriculum is value-based character development. The teachers have selected values to highlight each month in their classrooms, along with application activities. Throughout the year, we will be sharing the value of each month, so you can follow along with the lessons your sponsored children are learning!
Month of May
Value of the Month:
Gratitude. I appreciate what I receive.
Why this Value is Important:
It is more than saying “thank you,” but understanding the value of what is given.
Examples of this Value:
Children will be given opportunities to demonstrate gratitude while discussing moments of thankfulness in their lives.
I am grateful because God has demonstrated His love and justice to me.
1 Samuel 2:1-11, Lamentations 3:22-27, Colossians 3:15, Ephesians 5:20
