We had no idea when we decided to offer English classes for women who had small children in our preschool and wanted to learn English along with their children that the response would be so great.
The class was for mothers but grew to include all community women who wanted to learn English as a second language and to read and write.
120 women responded.
Monday through Friday at 2 pm you will find more than 90 women in class at Hope House, our multi-purpose building.
The teacher Maggie is doing a great job and for the first time these women who do not live close together but are in the same community are getting to know each other. They talk, share concerns and work together to solve them.
