Project Samuel (PS) reaches out to children ages 0-12 years. It is based on the calling of Samuel, the boy who brought change and hope to his community. PS offers every child the potential to hear from God and make a godly difference.
Sub-Saharan Africa is the youngest region of the world with nearly half the population under the age of 15. The opportunity to reach children is vast. From pre-school to school-aged teenagers, and from the city to rural Africa, children have their whole lives ahead of them to be used of God to do great and mighty things.
TWR’s programmes focus on children’s spiritual, physical and psycho-social development, reaching them wholistically. The programmes include: Witness at the Water (W@W) and Project Samuel Clubs (PS Clubs).
Witness at the Water (W@W) Junior reaches 3-7 year olds through a 3-5 minute mini-drama series, while W@W Senior reaches 7-12 year olds with a 15-minute drama series. Both include songs and spiritual lessons.
W@W takes children, via radio drama, into the lives of four children with their grandmother. The interaction between each other, family and community reveals their successes and failures, crises and celebration. The listener is drawn to Jesus, the living water, to give life answers.
Project Samuel Clubs help us increase contact and interaction with children. PS Club members meet bi-weekly to discuss the W@W drama using a study guide. In addition, they meet quarterly for seminars on various relevant issues to children. PS Club members are sponsored through a local Church ensuring that they are consistently discipled.
TWR speaks on behalf of children and youth to raise awareness and to challenge and work with - the family, the Church, the community, policy makers, the media and civil society to take appropriate action on issues affecting them.
Media leaves a significant impression on children. Through Project Samuel, partners with TWR have the opportunity to impact children with a message of hope in the Gospel. Some of our current partners include:
- ERF Medien
