Girls LitClub in Kibera Are Back & Ready for 2012!

This entry was submmited by Girls LitClub facilitator Prisca:


The Lit girls are back! The long December holidays are over. Anxious to begin the New Year, they were overjoyed to see their friends. We had a small party to welcome them where they had all their favorite snacks and spent the better part sharing what they were up to over the December holidays. All their adventures were fascinating and watching them trilled to be back filled me with such warmth and happiness. We also got the opportunity to introduce our new members to the LitWorld girls club and they look forward to attending our meetings in future. All the girls filled in questionnaires to better guide me on their expectations for the year and I am anxious to get started. We now have our first candidates waiting to sit for their exams by the end of the year. These are all the girls that were in class 7 and are now in class 8. We are all very proud and support them as they prepare for their examinations. It is indeed going to be an interesting year

The Girls LitClub in Kibera also got some special visitors from the U.S.! Here they are meeting and getting to know each other for the first time:

What a great start for the girls in Kibera for 2012!
