UPDATE!! from architect MARGIE ZEIDLER….April 2012, after a visit to Mama Anna’s English medium school where our donors have sponsored 17 children to take all classes in English. They started in January 2012, and in 3 short months, listen to what they have learned!!!!
To the sponsors of kids going to Mama Anna’s English Medium School:
“…you should be thrilled with what your contributions to send some of the Majengo kids to Mama Anna’s has done. I was absolutely astonished when I arrived with some of the children coming up to me and speaking fluent English! Tatu and another girl, in particular. The progress is quite incredible (I hate how young people can learn languages so fast!) Beyond that they are just so happy and excited to be there – it’s like they won the lottery! One little girl ran up to me the first day and started a conversation in English! She asked how all of you were and told me about how much she was learning at Mama Anna’s school. I didn’t even ask her and could barely get a word in edgewise! Amazing. And very heartening to see what a difference it has made in their lives already!”
