Life Skills Project
LWB's first ever Life Skills Camp, held in August 2015, was created to help teach older children basic life skills and how to become an integral part of their communities. Topics covered include communication skills, social skills and manners, work ethic, budgeting, basic sex education, and more. If you have a special desire to help these older children grow and succeed in life, please consider making a donation for this very important project. 2016 Life Skills Camp Sponsorship Opportunities
A Lifetime of Smiles: Dental Care
While orphanages provide medical care, food and shelter for the children, dental care is not a frequent practice in most orphanages. Without the proper care for their teeth, the children are more likely to have dental issues as they get older, or even more severe health issues that can be caused by poor dental hygiene. We were excited to start our Lifetime of Smiles Dental Care Program in our Believe in Me schools to help address this need. Students are taught the importance of dental hygiene and brush their teeth daily as a part of their school day. While this does not solve all of their dental problems, we are hoping that some preventative care will go a long way to giving these amazing children a lifetime of smiles.
This program provides much needed supplemental nutrition to students in LWB's Believe in Me schools to improve their physical well-being and help them do better in school. Your monthly sponsorship or one-time donation in any amount will make a wonderful difference in the lives of the students attending our schools.
LWB has dedicated teaching staff in all of our schools. Training, such as Montessori training in Beijing, is provided so teachers can learn how to best teach and help their students. A special teacher training trip was held in early summer 2015 where teachers from the U.S. met with teachers from all of our Believe in Me schools to exchange ideas and learn new teaching methods. The students are happy when their teachers return with new knowledge and ideas.
