SUMMARY OF THE SCHOLARSHIP’S HISTORY
The Compassion workers in Indonesia’s Manado district observed that parents of teenagers had lofty goals for them but limited resources to make those ambitions come true. Six Compassion centers were able to create the Youth Forum because of partners like you who provided financial aid. Twenty students who were awarded scholarships for associate’s, bachelor’s, master’s, and doctorate degrees were nominated by these six centers. The staff’s mission is to “bring up this generation’s Daniels and Esthers,” according to them. All 20 pupils are now registered in school and working arduously to fulfill their goals. ” “They are extremely excited to be a part of the curriculum and equally delighted to have the chance to further their education. It is obvious that they genuinely value the faith that has been placed in them.
In order to celebrate and encourage compassion, we would like to hear from people about how they feel about it and how they express compassion to those they encounter, whether they are strangers, people they know well, or people with whom they may have a more demanding relationship. What are some of the most significant life lessons you have discovered through compassion?
