Take poor families on fun activity days, so they have pleasant memories and may have more reason to escape poverty.
We have many programs that provide food, and shelter to impoverished people. However, there aren't many that are providing for the emotional well being of these families, other than counseling.
I believe taking families on fun activity days would do two things.
1. It would be a pleasant memory to raise their general mood.
2. It may be a catalyst giving them more incentive to change their impoverished condition, by nature of wanting more enjoyable experiences.
Please share any thoughts you have on this, as well as any ideas for implementation. Thank you.
