The current social development activities during our missions in South Sudan involve the following:
Playing indoor and outdoor games with children: it not only brings them joy, but helps them bond, understand teamwork, and become more active.
Engaging them in artistic crafts, handwork, and coloring, which enhances their creativity and develops their imagination.
Presenting small sketches and other forms of visual aids to make stories and topics presented more vivid and engaging for children.
Engaging young people in musical sessions where they sing along to instruments or pre-recorded music: this has already developed a musical passion in many.
Discussing spiritual and social awareness topics with youth, such as marriage and relationships.
Discussing spiritual and social topics tailored for women to enhance their sense of self and value in society and inspire them to be ambitious and productive members of their societies.
Conducting storytelling sessions for children, which include stories that delve into moral and ethical codes as well as a positive spiritual outcome.
Creating customized courses for the elder youth to enrich their soft skills, interpersonal skills, and leadership skills: through these courses, they can assist in running the programs with the missionaries, and by time and practice, they can handle teaching kids and holding activity and storytelling sessions with them alone, which will build towards creating the fully sustainable development program that we envision.
