Hands 4Life establishes one-of-a-kind intergenerational educational campuses worldwide. The purpose of the campus is to pair orphaned children with orphaned seniors to create a unique new family. The grandparents impart their wisdom to the grandchildren, and the children learn to respect and honor their elders.
The intergenerational home on the campus shares a common dining room and space for multi-functional activities such as crafts, movies, and birthday celebrations. The kids have their own section of the home where laughter and fun can be enjoyed, but their missionary parents enforce quiet time for study. The adjacent assisted living quarters provide the grandparents with round-the-clock care.
The campus is where two generations come together, where love, culture, happiness and life are shared.
The campus has plenty of space for aquaponic farming, fruit trees, crops, and various farm animals. The kids work the land if they have expressed a passion for getting their hands dirty. Those teens who are more of a salesman learn how to sell the abondance of the goods to local markets and restaurants. The lessons to learn are focused on sustainability, earned income, and developing business skills in order to be a productive member of society.
