Advent Lives

In this Advent Lives resource, PWRDelF leads children through stories, activities and crafts linking PWRDF’s World of Gifts to the Advent season. As children prepare for Christmas, they learn how communities prepare to receive gifts of donkeys, goats, chickens, midwife shawls and seeds.

This 2019 resource tells the Christmas story through the animals that help contributed to the lives of our partners in our All Mothers and Children Count program, many of which are available in our World of Gifts guide. Cows, goats, sheep, even guinea fowl all play a role in this resource. Children will learn about the importance of PWRDF’s livestock program to food security in Mozambique, Tanzania and Rwanda. This resource can be used in Sunday Schools, Youth Groups or at home, in whole or in part. Includes stories, candle lighting prayers, activities and crafts. Download the Advent Lives PDF

Hunger is Not a Game Leader’s Guide

Most young people know about The Hunger Games. They’ve read the books, seen the movies and may have even taken online quizzes to find out which character they are. This intergenerational resource encourages people to watch The Hunger Games together and reflect on the messages that the movie contains about food. The resource is divided into six sessions. In each session you will watch a scene from the movie, have a discussion, participate in an activity, and learn about PWRDF and the work partners are doing around food.
