Today, Luke and the rest of the ORPHANetwork group took the children to a supermarket to identify different jobs, the education needed for these jobs, and pay scales thereof. Their objective was showing the kids that you have to work your way up to the top. They also discussed the importance of skills in speaking up, asking questions, and having confidence, value, and self worth in oneself. The key was to be able to stand eye to eye with someone and tell them you are worth it.
Then they asked the kids to tell them what they learned today. It was no easy task for the children, especially those that struggled with self-worth and self-esteem, but they did great.
The team also distributed items donated by the team and ADS, Inc employees.
