Our boys went for their first schoolday..

A big day!!!! Our boys went today for the first time to school! Sagal (left) is just 4 years old, but he came in Amecet very sick, weak and malnourished. It is a milestone for all of us, to see him standing in his school uniform, ready to go to school. The two boys at his right are twins. They came in Amecet on the request of the the local authorities in their village. Their mother has a mental problem and the boys were working for their food.... They were carrying water to the local restaurant and they were paid with food. We have been looking for relatives, but no one, up till now is willing to take the two boys in. They are doing all three well, health wise, but also social wise, it was hard to listen for them and to obey when they were told to go and eat, or bath. We see a big difference in them. I just picked them from school and they all told me that they will go again tomorrow!!! I have also uniforms for the twins now, so tomorrow, they go in full swing!!It is so good to already start their education, because that will change their world!!!
