Standing up for Education

Today we held the first of many Student Ties activities today at the LDS Academy. This is a group of homeschooled children who have been partnered with an LDS community school in Abundancia, Paraguay.
We talked about what it means to be a humanitarian and why it is important to learn about other people around the world. One of the kids noted that we need to know about each other in order to learn. Brilliant! We found Paraguay on the map and talked about what it might be like to live there. One of the kids I helped showed me that he had lived in Buenos Aires, Argentina for several years. That’s right next door to Paraguay. To finished, we tied on friendship bracelets in a pledge to be kind, help those around us, and reach out to kids around the world in support of education!
