Children throughout South Asia are flourishing in Bridge of Hope centers. To celebrate their center's third anniversary, these kids held a special event.
Their teachers and leaders had planned the program, which highlighted some issues now facing their society, such as divorce and alcohol abuse. The children prepared many different presentations.
They acted out skits, ...
... presented cultural dances ...
... and praised Jesus through song!
In another region of South Asia, a large festival commemorated two Bridge of Hope centers' third anniversary. More than 700 people—from students and parents to community leaders and pastors—took part in the event. Some people even watched from their rooftops!
The children performed a vibrant talent show.
The celebration also featured special programs affiliated with Bridge of Hope, like the graduation of a tailoring class and the launch of a literacy initiative for women.
One exciting part of the event was the graduation of five Bridge of Hope students. God has blessed these children with an education that can open doors for them in the future.
In another part of South Asia, Bridge of Hope students participated in a special craft exhibition, showcasing their own handmade items.
The children made a variety of crafts and artworks from materials such as yarn, clay, wood and paper.
It looks like one of the patriarchs made a guest appearance.
A few students even constructed miniature Bridge of Hope centers!
These festivities were a great time of rejoicing in how God has touched children's lives through Bridge of Hope.
Not only do they have access to necessary education, but they are learning that the Lord loves them.
