I wish I knew how to download these photos in a more organised way, but…These are some of the photos of the graduation ceremony for the women’s first english class, shown with their teacher.  They began with a procession of the women, with their drums, singing.  They made speeches, did skits of things like shopping, going to the doctor, meeting visitors, ALL IN ENGLISH! Their husbands, children, teachers, all were there to celebrate their achievement.  Returning to school, after many years,  isn’t easy, but these women excelled, all of them.  Many will go on with their studies, some hope to train for a profession like nursing, and teaching.  This all started with an idea, and a grant of $3,000.  Let’s help to keep it going, thank you one and all!  Jessie
