Sunrise RTC prides itself in helping girls build their core values in therapy and in giving them the context to practice their values via community involvement. One of the 5 values Sunrise bases programming around is generosity. Some of their girls recently had the opportunity to practice generosity at Casa Hogar Allegre, a children's orphanage in Chiapas, Mexico, where they brought sports equipment, toys and games and spent a week teaching the children how to play.
A student who participated in the trip said, "I absolutely loved my experience at Casa Hogar. I feel so blessed to have been able to be a part of something so wonderful. The children are absolutely amazing and it was so cool to have time to play with them and expand my knowledge of language. The children are so happy with what they have and were so loving and my heart felt full by the end of the trip. I am desperate to go back to Mama Liz, and so grateful for the time I had with them there.”
It was not just the Sunrise students who embraced the opportunity, Natalie Furnell, one of Sunrise's Residential Managers, said of her time at Casa Hogar. "I loved being able to visit Casa Hogar with our Sunrise girls. Our eyes were opened to the beauty of the lives of these little children and we were able to see and experience the simple ways in which the children found joy in their lives. I will always cherish our time at Casa Hogar; I hope to visit again and I am so grateful that Mama Liz opened her heart and doors to us.
We are grateful for the numerous opportunities we have at Sunrise to help instill positive core values in the hearts of our girls."
