Givers of Self

Volunteers from the Peace Corp Program visit F.A.P.S each year. June 27th 2016 was another wonderful and mutually beneficial experience. The students get assistance from capable persons other than the usual faces they see every day and the guests get more teaching experience. The staff and the volunteers usually end the visit with a lunch where both groups share a little about themselves, their culture and work.

The staff and students of FAPS look forward to our continued partnership. Keep up your selfless work!

F.A.P.S Gives Back!

Staff and students hit the streets today, showing acts of kindness along the way. June 24th 2016 marked the day for the FAPS annual sponsored walk, this time with a twist of kindness. Students visited some sick and shut-in persons from the community and gave them a hand, cheered them up with a few songs and even donated some necessities.

F.A.P.S believes in teaching the students to give of themselves; keeping the spirit of volunteerism and random acts of kindness alive!

Who’s Your Daddy?

Pic 38

On Saturday 18th June 2016 fathers and interested males from the Fond Assau community and environs gathered to talk on issues related to fathering and parenting. A distinction made clear by the guest speaker; Pastor Dolston Morian. Fathers engaged in prayer, gave heart-felt testimonies and received life-changing information supported by the bible. Every male left the session knowing the myriad of negative effects of “fatherless” children.

Everyone present stood and made a commitment to finish the journey of fatherhood strong, without dwelling on a shaky start or any mistakes made along the way.

The evening ended with a short presentation to recognize a few of the fortunate participants. Sponsors included St. James Club Morgan Bay Resort (refreshments), Johnson’s Hardware (gift items) and Rackel Charles (Father’s Day pins)

Thank You to all who made the Rap Session successful.
