Most Saturdays the Child Reintegration Centre grounds come alive with the sight and sound of dozens of CRC students arriving for a time of socializing and writing letters to their sponsors. Last Saturday as usual, SAC Coordinator Henry and his assistant Assiatu welcomed a group of kids to spend a few hours together. This is a wonderful time for the kids to practice their writing skills and have fun meeting friends. The event generally opens with singing and a prayer, and ends with snack time. The result: letter and photo updates for our wonderful sponsors and new friendships between CRC students!
Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, the Child Reintegration Centre held a wonderful, joy-filled Christmas party for all the children and youth enrolled in a CRC program. The kids ate a delicious lunch with sodas, sang Christmas songs, held a Nativity pageant, danced, socialized, and received a special take-home gift which included a solar lantern. Many thanks to CRC Director Olivia Fonnie, SAC Coordinator Henry Kebbie, his assistant Assiatu Tarawally, and the entire CRC staff for making this a memorable occasion for the kids. We hope you enjoy the video and photos below.

After several months hiatus while the Child Reintegration Centre observed COVID protocols, the Sponsor A Child team has resumed holding letter events for the students.
"In the month of August, we had letter events on various days," SAC Coordinator Henry Kebbie writes. "We were able to gather a lot of letters and photos. In all the events, we gave out snacks and transportation refunds in order to encourage the students to come back for the next event. The students are always happy to come to the office for letter and photo events because when they come they will meet old friends and make new ones. Above all they are happy to write back whenever they receive letters from their sponsors."
If you haven't received a letter from your student in awhile, don't be discouraged as the case managers are maintaining contact with their charges. We hope to send you a letter and photo update soon! If you have the chance, please take a moment to write to your sponsored student and let them know you are thinking of them. Letter writing information is available on our website here, or email firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
