Survivor skills classes are underway! Between the two schools, 29 girls are meeting every Friday to learn something new about how to thrive as an adult in the real world. The curriculum kicked off with classes on getting to know one another, as well as gaining knowledge and practical habits regarding physical health and interacting with the world around them.
The girls made their first trip ever to a restaurant where they applied their knowledge of etiquette and social manners, and also learned how to order from a menu and pay the bill. It was a very positive experience and one student even said it was one of the happiest days of her life.
We look forward to another leadership visit to Panama this month to begin connecting with leaders in the local corporate market who may have opportunities to employ the students as they finish the program. We also plan to meet with Carolina and the students to get an overview of how the curriculum is being received.
