A hope-filled start to the school year: Youth eLesson

Indian schoolchildren with CFCA notebooks

Children in CFCA’s Hope for a Family sponsorship program in India get new notebooks for the school year. Read about the CFCA livelihood program that makes these books.

It’s back-to-school time for children in the U.S. Meanwhile, CFCA sponsored children in India have already been in school since June!

Larry Livingston, CFCA director of church relations, has created a fun exercise in our quarterly Youth eLesson to help young people reflect on hope and the upcoming school year.

It is a simple crossword puzzle, but the answer to every clue begins with one of the four letters that spell hope.

If you have young children or work with them, we encourage you to let them work on this puzzle alone or in teams. Give them a set amount of time to do as many as they can.

When they’ve finished, lead a discussion on the words in the puzzle. Ask each person to choose four words ñ one for each of the four letters in hope ñ and invite them to make those four words part of their personal ìroad mapî for the coming year.
