Our first month of Blossom has been a success! We now have 10 girls living in community. They eat breakfast and dinner at their hostel and spend the day at our Academy, studying with the boy hostel students. The boys prepare and carry a tiffin lunch for the girls and everyone eats their midday meal together.
Our students are motivated. They study on their own and in groups, and they inspire the boys to be responsible and diligent. At the end of the week the students write their own newsletter, summarizing the week's activities. On Sunday the parents visit, bringing treats, bringing fruit and vegetables from their gardens. The parents tell us how proud they are of their children. How they shine. How newly confident and happy they seem.
