  • Olives Rehabilitation Center | The Family International
    help these needy children It also boosted our faith for greater things and the counsel we received clarified our vision Seeing the needs around me I couldn t just sit and do nothing about them The following motivational quotes from the classes kept ringing in my mind All it takes for evil to continue is for good people to do nothing We can either be thermometers or thermostats Thermometers pick up the temperature Thermostats set the temperature I d rather be a thermostat than a thermometer I d rather set the temperature than pick up the temperature around In July 2000 my brother and I started teaching basic literacy skills to neglected children and teens in a small two room building We selected the children by a simple screening process where we would interview the child and the parent or guardian of the child and then choose the most needy cases In the beginning the school was open only in the mornings and most of the children were not able to pay any fee as they were from very poor backgrounds Many even came from teenage led households As time went on we realized that the children were too hungry to learn as many came without eating breakfast so we started a feeding program and later we were able to extend the time to two more hours of teaching in the afternoons for five days a week As children were added we slowly expanded with the help of Family Care Missions and our newfound sponsors In time the initial simple structure was slowly renovated through donations from Family Care Missions and local donors and we were able to add three more classrooms a small library and a small office During the first five years the program which started with 60 children expanded to teaching 90 children Teachers helped out on a voluntary basis namely those who were doing an internship from a local college or university We also hired accredited teachers Through collaboration with other charitable projects for children at risk within the coast province we learned a lot We registered the Olives Rehabilitation Program with the government as a community based organization Registering enabled us to more freely network with other community based organizations and to be accepted in the community To run any type of work in the community CBO status community based organization is the minimum registration that is required by law Compassion for these children in need and the love of Christ compel us to keep striving to develop this project further Since our humble and small beginnings we have grown to where we now take care of nearly 300 children and also teach train and encourage volunteers caretakers of the children and those in the community who struggle with the hardships of life One of the biggest lessons we ve learned through working with a community which is facing many challenges due to poverty drug and alcohol abuse and crime is the importance of patience
