There’s no shame in an occasional happy-cry. Last year, members of one of the newest Outreach-facilitated communities in DR Congo prioritized adult literacy as the first issue they’d tackle together. A mere six months later, the Level 1 literacy class they established welcomed its first round of graduates! The ten students (all women!) learned the alphabet, mastered entry-level reading skills, and even got started on some written tasks in preparations for their Level 2 classes.
Graduation ceremonies included honors for all involved, each of whom took turns writing their names on the chalkboard in front of the class — something they couldn’t have done six months ago. Take a look at some photos from the big day, and make sure to hydrate afterward.
