The Wishing Well is a program that we do whenever we enter a new community. A great way to build a strong relationship is to start small by offering the children a gift. The Reciprocity team and our volunteers get an opportunity to interact with the children personally as we interview them about their wishes. As outsiders, we want to gain the confidence of both the adults and the children in a new community. The Wishing Well is a sign of friendshiphope, and trust

As we shared fruit with the children and asked them what they'd want if they could have one wish, most of them looked up at us curiously. They were confused initially, but their eyes widened with excitement when they finally understood what we were offering them.

The sad reality is that for most of the children in the shanty towns, this will be their only present this year.

The Reciprocity Team will be working very hard in the coming weeks to continue interviewing the children, gather donations, and purchase presents while also helping other communities celebrate the holidays, as well. Please help us grant their wishes by donating today! Check out our Facebook album to see all of the children and their wishes: THE WISHING WELL.

Thank you so much for your continued support and  generosity. You are the reason why we are able to help so many communities in need!

Happy holidays from our Reciprocity family to yours!
