Note: For the protection of the girls in our care, they have each selected an alias, which appears in place of their given name in all Compassion First content.
Joyful squeals from both Compassion First staff and residents fill the walls of Sarah’s House as we celebrate the academic success of one of our survivors, Achie. After recently passing an Indonesian national exam that concludes her junior high school years, Achie has reached a milestone that now allows her to enroll in the country’s public high school system.
“As teachers we are so proud,” says Joy, “Whenever one of the girls can give a right answer in class or pass an exam it is exciting. Achie especially, she has become brave in her schooling and is able to comprehend what we teach more easily.” Though it is not always an easy process, the teachers are determined to help each girl reach her goal.
With traditional schooling beginning this month, it is with great enthusiasm that Achie prepares for her first day of high school. We are confident in her abilities and are excited for her future. Achie’s success is evidence not only of her hard work and the commitment of the CF teaching staff, but of the relentless support of our CF Everyday Advocates everywhere.
Thank you for your commitment to a better future for each survivor in our care.
It takes all of us.
