We are so proud of our little graduates! Graduation ceremonies, especially for kindergartners, are a special occasion in Haiti. Monde, our principal, was able to rent the caps and gowns that were proudly worn by the children. The ceremony included speeches (some by the students), followed by skits and lots of singing. Diplomas were presented to the kids as well.
Sadly, 14 children could not participate as they were recently infected with the chikungunya virus which is still ravaging Haiti. Thankfully we have plentiful amounts of medication to treat them and many others, thanks to our friend, Dr. Rich Paat.
One of the photos is of Ruth, the teenager who lost her leg in the earthquake, and is now happily living with Edeline's aunt. She enjoyed the event with her new friend, Maudeline.
