Holistic School Improvement: Taking Care of the Whole Child

On May 17, 2018, members of Williette Safehouse undertook a two-hour Service Project at Hope School for the Deaf. The project was the first phase of a two-month series the team committed to carrying out for the students. Phase one of the project included:

  • An introductory talk.
  • A brief breakdown of health.
  • An overview of the importance of the Disabled Community receiving assistance.

After the presentation took place, the team shared snacks amongst the group and informed the students of what they should expect from the project’s second phase.

At the Service Project conclusion, the school staff expressed their thankfulness. They explained that many of the children within Liberia’s deaf community do not get an opportunity to experience holistic projects. The students often share their difficulties, typically lacking resources, opportunities, and respect. Before leaving, the team members of Williette Safehouse made it clear to each individual present that their life has meaning and purpose.
