Made it to Bahir Dar after a ten hour van ride!!
Today was our first day at Yekatit School 23! The staff and children greeted us at the gate with flowers and a traditional ceremony. Our goal was to meet the kids, get an idea of their langauge skills, and HAVE FUN! With 53 deaf children with various skill levels the day was hectic, but SO Rewarding!
Tomorrow we look forward to working with each of the three groups (based on language level) and engaging them in language, literacy, creativity, and empowerment activities!
Back Soon -- hoping that pictures will be posted soon (internet
problems); you can imagine how happy & excited all the kids are :)
