Woodstock students CARE

IMG_9226_newLast semester, 9 Woodstock students boldly stepped out into unfamiliar territory, developing relationships with disabled children in villages within 1 1/2 hours of Woodstock’s campus.  Armed with a good dose of compassion, curiosity, and a desire to make a difference, the 10th-12th graders found themselves warmly welcomed into the homes and lives of families who, with scarcely limited information and resources, struggle to provide for their disabled children, yet are eager to learn from and welcome those who come offering dignity and hope.

A new semester of CARE visits with the Samvedna project start tomorrow!  We look forward to seeing the bright, smiling faces of the children whose lives have impacted ours and whose courage in the face of adversity has inspired us all!
