KCE's First-Ever Spelling Bee!

The word has come!
The word has come!

Brazilian Advocacy Project Fellow Cleia Noia brought a slice of Americana to the Maasai girls at KCE: a good old-fashioned spelling bee! What a way to hone their English skills! The fact that the words were taken from the girls themselves, noted from actual lessons, makes them even more meaningful. No obscure words generated by a teacher or a school system that one is unlikely to encounter again. Kudos to Cleia for organizing this successful event! And don't miss the photos in her attached report.
