We visited an after-school kids club while in Capetown called Arise. We were able to spend the whole day at Arise helping to prepare for the afternoon program and also getting acquainted with the mission of the organization. Arise ministers to vulnerable and at-risk children in the neighborhood and surrounding communities. Brigitte, one of the sweet workers there, told us that children walk from far, far away to come to the after school program here. What a blessing that is! The organization and this experience sure was a blessing to me.
(Arise had a policy that we couldn't take photos of the kids there and/or post them online, so the few we were allowed to take, I'm not allowed to share. I wish you could see their adorable faces!)
