It’s the little things.

“One day I was playing the game Mancala with one of the children in our program. At first we weren’t playing by the real rules, but soon this child expressed to me that she really wanted to learn how to play “the real way”. At her request I taught her how to play. She was very excited and I could tell that learning something new gave her confidence and a sense of accomplishment. We played five games and she won four of them! And I was actually trying! It’s amazing how great it feels to teach children, even if it’s something as simple as how to play a game. I love working with children at the Y and I can’t wait to play Mancala with my new friend next week!”
