During the meeting, I learned that the village is centrally located for this region so students from other villages could easily join our training and English classes. One local suggested having an English class for students who just finished the matriculation exam. Meanwhile, the women did not ask or say anything, which is culturally common here in rural regions. The head of the village then delivered a speech, thanking NEH and Arakkha Foundation for helping them have this precious opportunity.
Despite being poor, the locals are very friendly and willing to collaborate with us to create a better learning environment for their children. I am excited and can't wait to start training.
