Equip Orphan Outreach
We send counselors and social workers to facilitate a 5-day workshop for orphanage staff all over the developing world, as well as a separate workshop for the orphans themselves. The workshops specifically help to identify and cope with issues such as anger, anxiety, self-esteem, and identity. We work with the kids on identifying feelings and behaviors, overcoming negative self-talk, and rectifying harmful behaviors. Also, we work with the staff to educate them on the psychological effects of trauma, and how to manage negative behaviors and emotional outbursts associated with past traumatic experiences.
We have custom designed curriculum geared specifically for training and equipping orphanage staff who are caregivers for the children whose home is the orphanage. We not only teach using the curriculum, but we also leave staff with numerous therapeutic tools to continually utilize.
