Children in Partner Schools restart activities!
February 16, 2010
Children in three of our Partner Schools (that were destroyed by the earthquake) restarted their activities under tarps yesterday. The kids are singing, coloring, and other activities. Teachers are being paid to facilitate this, which helps the school children as well as the teachers’ families who have lost so much.
