Yes, our kids are growing up…
September 14, 2018
Olais found it very funny to show how tall Denis has grown, and how short I still am!
But when I look at the children you have sponsored, I am so proud of what we have accomplished together.
As of September 2018, here is where our kids are:
14 attend primary school
13 are in secondary school, 6 of whom are boarding
4 are enrolled in our vocational training programs
7 are attending post-secondary certificate or degree programs in everything from social work to business management
Yes, we’ve lost a few along the way, but mostly because they moved out of our service area or elected not to continue their education. I think this is an amazing statistic in a country where only 50% of the population is literate.
I fly home tonight.
Mary, Olais and I have visited many of our kids, both at home and at their schools.
Above, Mary, Olais, and Aneth share a laugh during our visit. I will be touch with those of you who are sponsoring kids soon after I get home and through my jet lag, to give you the highlights of my visits with your wonderful kids.
