WOW is an exciting program created to connect children from American schools with underprivileged children in local cities and other countries. Through WOW, children can develop meaningful friendships and break boundaries of social status and geographic location. Children who are part of the WOW program are able to receive practical knowledge in the true meaning of compassion and care for others through diverse opportunities to get involved in helping children in need. The WOW curriculum has been designed to be easily integrated into the school’s curriculum, and focuses on following different hands on activities and lessons that can be led by any motivated teacher.
The WOW program brings the following opportunities, among others:
Kids build friendships with children in need who live abroad through Skype video chats, YouTube videos, and by sharing arts and crafts as well as letters and photographs.
Kids are given the opportunity to go on quarterly field trips to serve children in need in their community.
Kids get access to one food packing event per year plus they take part in our WOW Christmas Gift Drive.
Kids learn Biblical lessons and are given the opportunity to put them into practice through the WOW activities.
