Day 2-5: Louis Roberts, Director of Mentoring and Coaching spent five days training the twelve new coaches on the L.A.C.E.S. mission, vision and methods of mentoring and coaching. These twelve individuals who are now trained on the L.A.C.E.S. curriculum will invest in the lives of 144 street living children.
Day 5: Now that we had 12 coaches trained on L.A.C.E.S. curriculum we were now ready to register 144 street children in Sierra Leone. The youth selected to be part of the program are boys and girls between the ages of 10-14. The children in our program have overcome and still trying to walk through life challenges that have been thrown at them at such a young age. Some are Ebola Orphans, others begs on the streets to find food, some have escaped from child trafficking and others have been abandon by their parents. Each one of them has had a different journey to the street and reasons why they are without family. On registration day they now are part of the L.A.C.E.S. family where they will begin to experience the love from their new family.
