STORIES OF INSPIRATION AND EMPOWERMENT
A MORAL MURAL
Younger children at Casa de Esperanza are growing — and they’ve got leaves to prove it. Julio, Hannah, Osvaldo, Tono and Alejandro joined other young children in the community for a time of learning all about personal values — think respect, friendship, honesty, patience and more. Following this lesson, the children each received a paper leaf with one of these values written on it, and went wild with markers and finger paints!
Julio dotted red and green paint around “paciencia,” and the others created similar masterpieces. When the children finished, a staff member collected the artwork and hung all the leaves together to create a “tree” of values! That way, the children can see their work hanging up and be reminded to value “respeto,” “honestidad” and more.
It’s a beautiful (and colorful) reminder!
