ACODO Learning Journey to Singapore
The purpose and objectives of the Learning Journey are to give ACODO children:
Courage and hope to have dreams and aspirations,
Dignity and motivation to work for themselves, so as to break free from their poverty cycle,
And the opportunity to raise funds for the orphanage in which they live.
The students got to know ACODO children when they went on a Service Learning Trip to ACODO in 2012. They had benefitted themselves tremendously during the trip. They realized that the impact of their trip for the children might be minimal as it was just a one-off trip. They really wanted to do something more impactful for the children. What could be more impactful than a visit to Singapore. These children might not have travelled further than their own hometown and the students hoped to give them a chance of their lifetime. Teachers and students raised funds to sponsor flight tickets, food, accommodation and transportation for all the children.
