Our Winner

Susanna MedleyI thought you might enjoy seeing our friend Susanna Medley posing with her new scarf.   Now she is already to come visit.   Many of the girls her age do wear a scarf at least on the streets even though it is not required until about age 12 or so. 

Every morning I see a sea of little girls in black pants and jackets with a white scarf on their heads as they head to school.   The children here go to school for only 3 hours a day.  Most schools have 3 shifts with the first shift sometimes starting as early as 6:00 in the morning.   The girls and boys often attend at different times but when they are younger the classes are sometimes mixed.  The three shifts are due to a lack of space and teachers.   So many people here want a good education for their children but have limited options.  Education is often something I have often taken for granted.  I don’t anymore.

Blessings.  Teresa

  1. Susanna loves her new scarf! Thanks for the contest and wonderful prize!
    We need to be reminded how wonderful a good education is, too–especially with summer so near and with all of us being so weary of the good school we have!
    Thanks for the reminder!
    Love you guys!

  2. I just read some of your entries in the journal. I really enjoy them and your pictures are wonderful. Noel, was that water cold and did it feel good? Congratulations on your accomplishment! Hugs and kisses to all.
