|Partnering with Parents
We believe that parents have a critical role in supporting their children’s education. Thus, we do not simply reach out to the students directly in their educational needs, but also to their parents. One way we do this is to conduct quarterly meetings with them.
Last week, we gathered the parents of our scholars to discuss the progress of their children in their studies and where they still needed additional assistance. We prayed with them and also gave them opportunities to write encouraging notes for their kids, an activity that they are not used to doing, but was received with great joy by their children. One of the scholars said that it was her first time to receive a letter from her mom, and she treasured it so much!
We are happy to report that all our scholars are doing well in their classes and passed the first quarter exams with flying colors. Their success in their studies lies in part, we are sure, in the partnership with their parents that God has allowed.
