Josianne is one of the students in the YEGO computer-assisted learning program. Not only is Josianne experiencing the joy of learning, she’s also experiencing what it means to be in community.
Josianne is an orphan, with no family to help her celebrate important milestones like birthdays. But last week her classmates got together and organized a party to mark the occasion, complete with candies, groundnuts and a small gift. The celebration included words of appreciation, encouragement for Josianne and a prayer.
There was a spirit of love, unity and solidarity in the classroom that day. What better way to build community, peace and hope for the future.
