The Guarantee Good Will Network has given a $1,000 donation to Inspire One. The donation will help replenish the organization’s funding for Biola Enrichment Days and help to continue with its vision: “inspire one, by loving those in front of you.”
It is the belief of its founder- Licia Clark, that if a virtuous seed has been planted in the lives of children during their youth, then fear and frustration will not have room to grow. If one pursues “the call” to inspire, the lights of purpose and expectation will ignite and the lives of children will change by the effort of those who care.
About Inspire One
Inspire One continues to push forward and break barriers that divide children from different cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. The organization seeks to enlighten, teach and develop the gifts of ALL children. Through community involvement, cultivating friendships, building team work and developing the talents of children through music and fine arts, Inspire One has accomplished a lot in the Central Valley.
Biola Enrichment Days
Biola is a small farming community just a few miles west of Fresno off of Shaw Avenue. It is a community with great needs. Many in the town work as farm laborers, which puts them in the fields all day during the summers, leaving their children at home alone. For the past 12 years Inspire One volunteers have gathered for three weeks in July giving the children a place to go and things to do! Over 100 children attend, ranging in ages from 5 to 13 and older children in the community have an opportunity to volunteer, helping the younger ones.
The mornings are packed full of activities! They are divided into 3 sessions, with the kids in appropriate age groups. Each group rotates through crafts, creative arts, and games or outside activities, including photography, sewing & cooking. Fridays are fun days, with movies, popcorn, and outside water games! At the end of the three weeks, the children put on a play for their families and the community.
