Language Club

Language club continues to go so, so well. The young children's lesson has been hosting up to 50 children recently and the soccer boys have been making great strides with their English.

Some of you may remember one of our cleaning ladies from camp, Cecilia. She, along with her colleagues Maria and Julia, have also recently started coming to Language Club. One of our volunteers, Poppy, has dedicated herself to teaching Cecilia how to read and write. It's so great to see a volunteer identify a need and then respond to it by using free time to put together learning resources and special lesson plans. It's always our goal to facilitate any sort of side project that a volunteer conceives and would like to see through to fruition.

We've already seen great improvement in Cecilia's letter recognition skills and manual dexterity. She has set herself the goal of signing her full name (instead of an "x") on May's wages slip. We know that with her hard work and Poppy's dedication to teaching, she'll achieve that goal!
