Biva and Mina are sisters. They are both scholarship recipients and both amazing students! They walk each day for 1 1/2 hours each way to come to our daily sessions, and they have not missed a day! (Some of the other girls missed a day here and there for a variety of reasons, but they were consistent and grateful for every moment....) I could not help but be inspired by both of these young ladies. They borrowed the digital camera for the night to "document" their home life. I think you will find their smiles and determination as inspiring as I do.
Mina has received a scholarship for school for 3 years and her sister, Biva has received a scholarship for 2 years. Both girls are GREAT students~ I hope we can help them continue with their education so they can help their family and their country improve their lives.
Biva took this picture of her family....so she is not in the picture!
