Each day of the trip began with an educational talk given by the local staff. These sessions helped the WHS students understand how the trauma suffered by these children impacted them and how to best serve these vulnerable kids. The talks included explanations of healthy versus unhealthy belief systems, effects of neglect and trauma on young developing brains, and how to be more competent and helpful when giving care to these vulnerable children.
The trip was organized through Back2Back Ministries. Back2Back Ministries is an international Christian non-profit organization dedicated to being a voice for orphans. They exist to love and care for orphans and vulnerable children by meeting their spiritual, physical, educational, emotional and social needs that they might overcome their life circumstances and break free from the cycle of generational poverty.
