Reflective Essay On A Charity Event

Good Essays
Anis, Najwa, Taha, and more other little innocent children were enjoying their time with me and my friends and were so happy that day. Hand in Hand association gave me the opportunity to spend a whole day with them in the primary school where they study, playing with them, helping them with their homework, and doing much more fun things. Imane the organizer of this charitable event asked me to help them in entertaining primary school students and draw smiles in their faces by giving them all of what their parents can’t afford to them since they are from poor families. The event went smoothly and perfectly. The organizers, volunteers, and I worked hard to make the event organized, fun, and full of love. This experience brought happiness not …show more content…
Organization was a factor that made the event very professional, even though it was organized by college students. The organizers divided volunteers into groups, and each group was responsible for seven children. My group was composed of intelligent and well-behaved children. They were following all the games’ instructions and learned the games’ schedule before even starting. The schedule made it easier for us, as volunteers, to follow the organizers and to make our groups ready. Microphones, high speakers, food, laptops, everything necessary was brought by organizers, even tee-shirts with the association’s name on were available. I was amazed by the good job that all of the organizers did, and learned how to manage and organize an event just by observing the work that was done during the …show more content…
Every time I needed help, another volunteer come to help me, and every time I had trouble with a game, one of the organizers join my group. Help and communion was the base of the event. I felt the love between us, volunteers, and between groups of children. My group was, for me, a family where I was the mom and the kids were my children. When we won in the second game, the kids came running to hug me all in the same time. It was a great feeling: the feeling of mutual love cannot be described. I learned that making others love you is something that can be done with easy and simple things, especially kids that are innocent creatures. One of the most dramatic endings of my whole life was when we left the kids. Everyone was crying and feeling sad. The love I felt towards the kids seemed very old to me and it was very hard for us to leave each other. Love is an amazing thing. If I feel loved, I am probably lucky and special, so I have to share this love by loving others and making them feel loved, special, and

    In the past student attendance awards and other competitions were based on grade level and the winners were easy to predict. Unfortunately, the outcomes being predetermined lead to no incentive for losing grade levels to participate. By grouping our students into houses or cohorts from various genders and grade levels, it gave everyone an equal chance of winning in their team. This was an immediate success as we announced the leaders weekly and could often spot students checking the digital score board for who was in the lead. From the sorting ceremony on day one, our students embraced the house concept and made it their own.…

    Just as “God reveals himself…as one who is relational” the students “made in God’s image share[d] this communal, social nature” (United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, 1998). For the most part, I found the climate of the classroom to be very accepting and friendly. During playtime, the students would typically get along and play in groups that would vary depending on the day and activity. Although there were instances where a student did not want to share their toys, they almost always listened with either myself or a teacher told them to play nicely. During arts and crafts time when the students were divided into two separate groups, the students would share their artwork with one another and the class would applaud them for their performance.…

    At the Hogar, my job as a volunteer was to help out whenever we could. Primarily, this was assisting with the care of the babies, entertaining the children, and helping with other chores. After spending time with the children, I could hardly believe the strength, energy, and positivity the kids possessed despite their disabilities or family situations. I was truly inspired by these amazing kids and I have realized my passion is to help others. Above all, participating in this mission trip with 17 other students, gave me confidence in my own abilities as a problem solver.…

    Special needs students educated together in regular classes do better academically because due to their peers assistance (PIT Journal). Down Syndrome students benefit because nonclassified students help the classified students to review and learn their schoolwork. It is only in a general education classroom that special education students receive beneficial educational and social interactions with classmates that provide for a variety of learning opportunities which are not readily available in the self-contained or mainstreamed classrooms. This inclusion helps Down Syndrome students because they are helped by someone who is close to their age and can connect easily with each other (Dwight). I believe when Down Syndrome students are placed in inclusive classrooms, every student benefits…

    I didn’t realize how much work being a Pre-School teacher was. Altogether my day at Leads Head Start Pre-School was eye opening to me. Yes, the children did a lot of playing and dancing, but there was learning involved with everything the children do. The teachers were amazing and love the children as their own, and the children loved the teachers too. I made new friends that day and I have also been thinking about doing early childhood education.…

    When families volunteer in classrooms, it sends out a positive message to the students and everyone benefits from the experience. A quote by Coleman (2013) affirms that everyone benefits when families volunteer in the classroom. The children benefit tremendously from having their parents in the classroom; the families themselves benefit by gaining confidence in their ability to contribute to the education of their children, and teachers benefit from becoming more familiar with families (p.…
