Partnership with World Vision

Partnership with World Vision

 

Fifty MPCS goLEAD high school students are participating in an innovative partnership with World Vision, one of the largest Christian humanitarian organizations in the world, working in nearly 100 countries. On October 12, the Ignite program launched at MPCS with a powerful event, where students who have committed to sponsor children in Rwanda discovered which child chose them as their sponsor. The MPCS students had their photos taken and sent to our partnering community in Rwanda, where their photos were displayed for the children in Rwanda to choose which student they want to be their sponsor. At the emotional “reveal” event, the goLEAD students then received a picture of the child holding their photo with a note letting them know about the child and what made the child choose them. This was an emotional beginning of a transformational relationship that, accompanied with an experiential curriculum, will further shape our high school students into global leaders with a biblical worldview. 

Ignite is a first-of-its-kind partnership in Georgia between Mount Paran Christian School and the global Christian humanitarian organization World Vision. The goLEAD participating students will build relationships with their sponsored child in Rwanda through the remainder of their high school career at MPCS. They will also learn about the root causes of poverty and how to tackle critical world issues. By connecting with vulnerable children in the developing world, students will gain empathy, learn to love their neighbors, and provide tangible help to meet the basic needs of others. The students will also lead in local action, helping neighbors in need in the Atlanta area.

World Vision is one of the largest Christian humanitarian organizations in the world, working in nearly 100 countries. Through the organization’s efforts, every 30 seconds, a family gets water, a hungry child is fed and a family receives the tools to overcome poverty.
