Many Christian led orphanages in our country have many challenges in different areas in term of raising orphans as its demand is huge. Many of these orphanages struggle to have enough resources regarding facility and food, and the important role of education for them is usually neglected. There are very few orphanages that help the orphans grow in dignity by supporting their education and preparing them for the future challenges. This is why the Esther Project is necessary for those unengaged groups of orphans.
Observing our activities, the Esther Project meets the desire of the orphans and is making a huge impact to their lives. Our students find this project helpful and are excited learning at the Esther Project. They are a proud of being a student of the Esther Project. At their government school, they share about what they have learned at the project with their fellow students and teachers. As a result of the impact of the Esther Project, orphans have gained more confident in socializing at school, do better at school subjects, and have demonstrated large improvement in critical thinking process and skills such as English and Computer, etc.
During the class this week, we continued discussions and preparation for a presentation that the students will have in November. This is a kind of learning process that helps the students learn team work, problem solving skills and planning. They are making progress week after week and excited about what they are planning, and the staff is anxious to see the students shine.
