Christmas is a time of joy, unity, and learning! Every year, community facilitators conduct Christmas Workshops using common or recycled materials. Children and their parents create Christmas lanterns, trees, and garlands to brighten up their homes and communities.
The workshops are an opportunity for friends, volunteers, and families to interact and socialize, strengthening our team-spirit, refreshing and re-energizing us for future challenges. ATD Fourth World Philippines is not a charity organization but a movement to empower poor communities to take part in creating solutions to eradicate poverty. We continually urge our policy- and decision-makers to work WITH the poor not exclude them. The workshops are more than just activities, therefore; they are part of the continuing process to create opportunities and partnerships and build confidence amongst the communities.
We invite YOU to join the preparation and/or workshops! Volunteers are badly needed!
The workshops will culminate with a Christmas party on December 14 filled with games and laughter.
