February 24 – Community Work

Today a group of young people from the village borrowed our newly donated gardening equipment to clear out a soccer field in the village. We are always happy to support community activities and initiatives that help bring the community closer together as well as improve the lives of everyone in the community. As the young and the children made an effort to cut and clear away the grass that was growing wild on field - Prodev will donate new goal gates for the football field.

February 18 – Staff Computer Program – First Lesson

We’re looking for ways to ensure that students attending our school are computer literate. Computer literacy is a required life skill in the 21st century. While we’re still not sure how to finance a program like this for the school, we got a donation of a few laptops. As of today – the teachers of Ecole Nouvelle Zoranje are getting computer literacy classes after school hours. There is great enthusiasm for acquiring new knowledge. This class is also inline with our belief that the best way to ensure a good school is through the teachers.

February 4 – School Football (aka Soccer) tournament

Billy, our school sports teacher organized a school soccer tournament. The tournament is taking place during recess and classes are competing against each other. The final match is expected in about a month. In the meanwhile, this provides a lot of interest with many kids cheering the players along.

There are also friendly teacher-student matches that are not part of the main tournament.
