“The Esther Project Myanmar has been such immense blessing and life-changing-platform through education in its mission and goal of reaching and serving the underprivileged and downtrodden community.” Rev. Nin Ko
During the past week, I went to visit the Agape Vineyard Orphanage Home, to visit with Rev. Nin Ko, the caregiver of the orphanage to evaluate and get his input regarding the children from his orphanage attending The Esther Project. Rev. Nin Ko informed us that the orphans under his care are very interested and excited about learning English and are very good in their studies. It was pointed out that the students are all very punctual and attentive during classes and Rev Nin mentioned that he only wished they were as excited when they attend their regular school. He and the children asked if additional homework could be given as the children view it as a fun activity to practice their English skills. After reviewing their request, a new plan has been implemented to provide additional home activities for the students over the next several weeks to improve their skills of writing, reading, and speaking.
Under the leadership of our teachers, more responsibility is being given to our students and the second-year students are now given the privilege of helping to lead our students in prayer and conducting devotional programs daily in English, this gives them practice at what they have learned and enhances their skill of listening, reading and speaking in public to boost their confidence and potential. All our students are enthusiastic and willing to take up the challenges being presented to them.
