girls club

The core 12 girls that started the I4A program in September are still going strong.   I am inspired by their dedication to learning and to each other.   Each day before and after school, they help care for younger siblings, go to the market, clean and cook.   At least 3 times a week their parents allow them to come to the Community Center after school for English, dance, music, theater and art lessons.    During their school vacations, the girls attended lessons at the Center 6 days a week!   Kudos, they are learning and having fun!    They support each other to dream big and set goals around their education and future.   They help each other with homework and chores at home so they can attend their lessons at the Center.   They have formed their own ‘girls club’ and it is wonderful to see them taking pride in their accomplishments.
