We had a great visit this morning with Angela, Mwansa, and Abel, HEC scholarship recipients, learning about their experiences in 8th grade since graduating from our Young Peacemakers school last December. Even though they are doing well in school, they all agreed math was tough and an introduction to algebra in 7th grade would have been helpful. All 3 are orphans living with their grandmothers along with numerous siblings and cousins. Mwansa said there are 16 persons living in her home, Abel 8, and Angela 6. The grandmothers in this area have huge responsibilities raising grandchildren since so many parents die of Aids.
Also in the picture is the head teacher, Mr Milimo, and GU students, Tara Sheehy, Natalie Sherer, Hannah Henson, Lindsay Harmon and Karl Bradford.
