“One hour, once a week with one child”
Kid’s Hope is a mentor program initiated by World Vision between local churches and local primary schools. Blackwood Uniting joined the program in mid 2008 in partnership with Blackwood Primary School. We have 10-15 trained mentors who work with one child each. We also have prayer partners for each child and mentor.
Its aim is to improve opportunities for mentoring children in the areas of education, self confidence and wellbeing. Our range of activities are all aimed at having fun and building friendships with the child. Whilst some academic help may be involved, it is not a learning assisted program.
It doesn’t take much to make a lot of difference in the life of a child. If you would like to offer just one hour a week to help one child, please contact Rev Leanne Jenski or the office for more information about becoming a mentor.
