I was told a story about a Nicaraguan lady who was in her 60ies. To this day she sadly recalls when she was a child that while she was able to attend school, she will never forget that she was not able to participate in the graduation cerimonies. In Nicaragua, these ceremonies come with many costs and while for us they are not much, for parents it is often difficult to find the funds.
November was a month of several graduations for our program participants and we are pleased they were all able to attend. I think you can see they were too. :-)
