During our visit to the school, Audrey and I took the opportunity to see how
Eliasu is doing! His teachers speak highly of him and the administration often
use him as a role model to encourage other children. We learned last week that
he has been made Class Prefect, which is an admirable achievement (comparable to
Class President)! He has been working hard during exams and we look forward to
celebrating his anticipated good grades when the term is completed!
next challenge is working with Eliasu and his family to get his younger brother
registered as well. Although his brother has been given a bicycle to attend
school, his father states financial difficulties as the barrier to his
registration. We are still working with them to see what can be done, but in
the meantime, Eliasu remains an encouragement to his brother and the other
children in the camp.
