We received letters from our two girls we sponsor through the COEEF Program: Mariana Dereje, 1st Grade  and Bethehem Eyob Shenkute, 12th Grade.We also received cards from two of the young women whom we sponsored that graduated from 12th Grade and the COEEF Program last year! They hadn't had a chance to update us with photos and news of their final graduation year.

It is also so encouraging to read of their plans to continue their education and begin college.The letters are on display in the school entry way, available to admire.
