A Message From Charles and Zach Waterman

My Dad and I have the opportunity to go build a playground in Jamaica this coming February. My Mom and Dad have encouraged each of us kids to go on a special mission trip near the end of high school. Some of you will recall that Emma went to Palestine to build playgrounds with Kids Around the World in her Senior year. I am only half way through my junior year, but timing wise this mission trip works out well for me and my Dad. I have enjoyed doing other mission trips with my family but this will be a special time just for me and my dad. I am excited to work with the kids we will meet and be a servant building a safe place for them to play and hang out! Why Jamaica?

This is a little explanation from Kids Around the World:

Best known as a popular holiday destination for tourists, Montego Bay has a dark side many vacationers don’t ever see.
Children growing up in these conditions are exposed to many hazards. Some are ensnared by the lure of gang culture. Particularly vulnerable are those growing up without parents. Others are the only breadwinners in their families, either because they have lost their parents or because there is no work for adults. Forced to work long hours on the streets of Montego Bay, these children are often victims of abuse and exploitation. They also miss out on education, which is critical to help them escape the cycle of poverty.

This playground will be a safe and productive outlet for them to exercise, build confidence, develop trust and nurture relationships with peers, siblings and care givers. Play activities will help alleviate the debilitating effects of trauma, fear and depression. Active time on the playground will contribute to academic success and help improve classroom performance. Most of all, these kids will experience the joy of knowing they are loved by a good, good Father!

Would you please consider supporting us financially and in prayer as we prepare for this trip? Thanks in advance!

Zach and Chuck

About This Campaign

Impacting the lives of kids with God's transforming hope.

At Kids Around the World that is our driving desire, but we can't do it without our incredible IMPACT Team Volunteers.  All over the world, children's lives are being changed forever because someone took the time to go with us to offer them hope.  Our IMPACT teams do this by digging holes and assembling equipment so kids can have a beautiful, safe place to play and be a kid. They do this each time they help to distribute food to families who would otherwise go without or use Bible Storying to tell God's story to those who may never have heard it.  Whether it is spending time and attention loving the children we are serving or offering prayer and encouragement to the caregivers, parents, teachers and others who work so tirelessly to meet their needs, our IMPACT Teams make a difference. We are excited to have you join us! For information about this specific IMPACT Team trip, checkout our website. 

All checks can be made payable to Kids Around the World, please put the volunteer's first and last name in the memo, and mail to:

Kids Around the World 4750 Hydraulic Road, Rockford, IL 61109
