Josephine is an artisan with a big smile and a twinkle in her eye. As she took her turn at the chalkboard, she wrote out the word “Caribo”, which is Swahili for welcome. Josephine told us that this class has “opened her eyes” to the world. What does this look like for her in everyday life? This means she can now read and understand street signs that she had never understood before. This means she can be confident in her abilities and move forward seeing a lot more clearly.
The air of community and empowerment amongst these women was infectious. We are so proud of their progress and look forward to seeing more of the wonderful things they will accomplish!
