Striving for High Marks

*WR Village, Sri Lanka

 

We did not hear the usual sounds of children when we arrived at the tutoring class location. It was calm and quite too good to be true. When we got closer, we found the children with test papers in front of them, writing answers to the questions asked.

 

We spoke to the teacher who informed us that this is the first quarterly test for the year, preparing them for the school quarterly examinations in April.

Keeping Their Environment Clean

*UV Village, Sri Lanka

 

We asked the children why we have to keep the environment clean. Many came up with good answers, saying if the environment is kept clean our water systems will be clean, we will get fresh air, and the environment that is unclean leads to bad health and diseases. We asked the children to think about their home’s surroundings and school as to what can be done to make them better as we humans, animals, as well as plants live in the same environment.

Persevering Despite Criticism

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

 

In the spring, more attention was paid to increasing the income of the villagers in the group. To improve the financial condition of the group, training was given to the women to make fast foods, such as namkeens (healthy indian evening savory snacks), pakode (a fried Indian snack), etc. Few women tried these at home, and a few succeeded while few did not.

Spring has arrived here in the Garden of Peace and Hope and it’s the season of work again, especially for the gardener. In March, we celebrated the International Women’s Day (March 8) and we gave some gifts to the women who attended our event. More than a hundred people visited the exhibition when it was open for two days.

Celebrating International Women’s Day

Women’s Empowerment Centres, Afghanistan

 

As we are teaching hygiene to the Women’s Empowerment Centre (WEC) attendees, we distributed toothbrushes and toothpaste to 100 students. We also celebrated International Women’s Day at the WEC, where we also distributed socks and soap to 140 attendees.

 

About 50 girls and boys are learning English at the WEC, and 45 women are learning literacy, hygiene, and birth life-saving skills (BLISS). The women sew traditional Afghan clothes and sell them in local markets to improve their economic conditions.
