The girls can't wait to get inside our new school!

Right now, we are making the best use of the current school, but it doesn't have enough space, it has no electricity and you have to climb through rocks and garbage to get to it. Despite these challenges, we have been teaching the girls to sew and have been continuing computer lessons with them. They absolutely love working with the laptops and have already made so much progress in their learning. 

Most importantly, the new school is about to open and the girls, along with our team, could not be more excited!  Right now, we are picking out the colors for the walls, deciding on the name, and working on an awesome curriculum! We have also been busy hiring teachers and staff and have been able to add some incredible individuals to our team. We even have some extra space outside of the school that we may be able to tranform into a playground for our students.

Thank you so much for all your support in this project! It is undescribable to watch our dreams become a tangible reality and it would not be possible without you!
