Education is a KEY!!!!

 As soon as possible, when the child is able to go, we enroll the children in school. We feel that it is very important for the children to get education. Today, Silivia (second of right) went to school for the first time in her life. She is 11 years old and had never the chance of going to class. The boy at the right is Daniel, he is 13 years old, he is  in P1, together with Silivia and also with Okello the boy third from the right. Okello is 9 years old and never went to school either. You should have seen their faces, they were so happy and so proud of their uniform and their school bag!! It is not easy when you are 11 or 12 years old and you are in class with children who are 6 or 7 years old. We are truly thankful for the teachers from Harmony Primary school, who always allow our children to join. The girl at the left, is Harriet, she is 12 years old and goes to P3. When the children are going back to their families, we will make sure that the child will stay in school.
The children are picked at 7 am in the morning by the Harmony school bus. And they come back around 2 pm. Their lunch is waiting for them and after that they go for a nap! And they sleep.... the children are still not as strong as the other children, so the rest in the afternoon is doing them well!

 Then Matthew went to the nursery school last week. We felt that he needed more to interact with children of his age and we thought to try it out. He is 3 years old and Teacher Susan allowed him to join baby class. This is his first day of school, he was so proud of his bag....
They had already started Bible class (the first day I always bring them) and he could sit in front, while they were singing, he didn't know what to think of it, so many children....... I left him and when I came to pick him at 12 noon, he was carried by a teacher and he had cried the whole morning... with his bag on his back!!! The teachers told me that we should not give up, he will get used to it, they said. I felt a bit worried, it is a lot of work in baby class, with 35 toddlers of 3 years and than a screaming Matthew, who wants to be carried........I am impressed with the nursery teachers!!
When Matthew came back home in Amecet, he was happy, smiling, he wanted the school bag to go in bed with him.... and he had a nice potty time with Mary, he was just okay!!!!

PS. He cried for 3 more days, but yesterday he was very fine in school, he "wrote" in his book en played with the other children. Unfortunately, he had fever this morning, so we kept him home and took him to the clinic for testing, we started treatment directly, hope that he is not crying tomorrow??
