Our Girls

I have just posted a video on our project page of girls performing recitations as part of their learning French. The first piece, spoken by 3 girls, is called "Madame Turtle," which states, in part:

Tell me, Mrs. Turtle
There where your small head enters, your four small legs, and your tiny tail
Why are you walking so slowly on the tips of your toes?
If I give you a salad, are you going to be afraid of me again?

The second and last piece, spoken by Vive, or Vivian, is entitled "My Village."

My co-project leader, Bernadette, has been in close contact with the heads of our 3 schools. The principal at the Rwenena school reports of the GlobalGiving supported girls, "It has been a very long time since girls have had good grades like boys and are well prepared to advance to the next level." The other 2 schools have noted similar progress.

Based on classroom performance alone, many of the girls are already eligible for advancement to the next level. In addition, we are eagerly awaiting test scores, which should be available soon, to determine how many of our other students can advance.

All 3 heads of school are astounded by the progress and implore the donors of GlobalGiving to continue to support them. They, the students, the kids' parents, and AMCAV are all very grateful.
