It is always a delight to visit the women's Literacy class. There are approximately 22 women attending the class now. They go to class 2 hours per day for six days per week. Nick filmed them in class and he took a turn at being the teacher. At the end they served us food and they played, sang and danced for us. It was a delight. Their writing in Nepali and English was excellent. They told how much confidence they had now that they could read and write. One lady said that her husband would now take her with him when documents needed to be signed. They are very proud of their accomplishments. A lot of the women needed glasses so we sent them today's to have their eyes checked and nine needed glasses. Hopefully we can continue with this program.
