I arrived in Ethiopia at the end of September in order to lead PinkGirl into the new school year. We began in January 2011 with 15 girls and this year, 2012/13, we have exceeded 120 girls on 4 campuses. Last years success of 88% of our girls passing to the next grade has been a great encouragement. We are headed in the right direction and the Life Skills classes are changing minds and hearts. We sent 8 of our girls off to the universities. We have added 38 new 9th grade girls as well as a pilot program of 24 -7th and 8th grade girls. All of the girls are tutored in 6 academic classes and attend a Life Skills class each week. We have a partnership with YoGo Girls and Grace Center for Families and Children so that their girls are able to attend the tutoring and Life Skills classes.
