My team Peace and Green works on "Planting goodness ' in the children's mind.
we gave the third week training to those little children. As i told you before, these children are coming from a family who can't give them their daily meal at least.
Little boys and girls can't have snack when they reach home, may be they will be chased out to look for their dinner. The girl can go and find her supper her own way, and the little boy...goes around and...
What a sad are is that. Always the media mentioned"Cherkos" estate, to be the dirtiest, the cheapest, the ugliest and the poorest place in Addis. That is where we are going to empower children.
Using their time
To respect each other and their teachers
To read every day...etc.
last Friday, we asked them what they learned from the team.
one short and tiny boy answered; "I used to think the best students came from another planet. Because i don't understand many of the subjects and they did. You told me now, We are all same, I can be the person I want to be, You helped me to have confidence in me.
I can't tell you how happy i am to hear such a powerful message from a very tiny boy.
many of them gave us their feed back.
We were told that, all the students were asking if we were coming on Friday afternoon.
This is also another joyful message to hear young children waiting for you after school to sit with hungry stomach to hear from you. We are happy they like us.
these 65 students were chosen for us to shape them up...because they were poor in their academic results, some are having bad manners.
By the end of the month, they'll be awarded for attending our classes.
