Get Odette to Borneo Orphanage

Personal message

My name is Odette Davids, I am 43 years old and I live at Petra Institute for Children's Ministry in White River, Mpumalanga.

I have been accepted to go do volunteer work at an orphanage in Borneo (Indonesia), that has 620 children, coming from very troubled backgrounds. These children come from the surrounding jungle where sexual abuse, alcohol abuse and neglect is very high. With what I have learnt at Petra, with our Walking with Wounded Children Course, I am sure I can use all these Play therapy tools, to make a difference in the lives of the children, but also with the staff working there.

I am expected in Borneo by the 26th June 2019. Emirates has a special on currently so if I could buy my ticket before the sale ends on the 13th June, then I will save R5 000 off my travel costs.

I have learnt at Petra Institute, many tools to get children to talk in their own language which is Play. Play is the language of children and toys are their words. The best thing you can give any child, is TIME, to allow them to tell their story, to someone who is really listening. That is what I intend to do. So given that these children had experiences that no child should Ever have to endure, I want to sit with them and give them the time to talk about it through play. I have also been trained at Petra, to train others in our Walking with Wounded Children Course, so it will be a privilege to equip a team at this orphanage so they too can use these tools to work with the children of Borneo and train others. Petra Institute has also trained a team in Singapore with our Walking with Wounded Children Course and some team members will be doing an outreach to this orphanage, so I can help to further equip this team.
