The academies are more than a safe haven for the children in La Limonada. While we believe it is important to provide a beautiful alternative to the negative influences of gang-ridden streets, we also want to develop the children into flourishing young adults, poised to be the future leaders of a peace-filled community.
One important aspect of our curriculum is value-based character development. The teachers have selected values to highlight each month in their classrooms, along with application activities. Throughout the year, we will be sharing the value of each month, so you can follow along with the lessons your sponsored children are learning!
Month of March
Value of the Month:
Let’s work together and cooperate; our abilities compliment each other.
Why this Value is Important:
Almost every aspect of life is done in community with others. We must value our abilities and those of others to complete tasks with efficiency and kindness.
Examples of this Value:
Children will practice teamwork as they complete group tasks together.
Two are better than one. Teamwork loves each other and seeks justice together.
Ecclesiastes 4:9-12, Matthew 26:36-38, Romans 15:14
