I can read

Four months ago these ladies could not read. Some of them could not write their own name.

Today they graduated from literacy class. They can read! We are so proud and happy! Jeronne is on the right. The girl in the orange dress has an amazing story, a former restavek ... now reading. :) Congratulations ladies!!!!

We are off to pick up the MN Teen Challenge group and Pat and Randy -- it will be a busy week ahead. We're looking forward to it!

Have a great weekend.

This was a great post, thought provoking and important to read.
