Leadership Training: Graduation (kind-of)

Friday, July 5, 2013

Today wasn’t technically graduation—The actual graduation with handing over of certificates will take place some time in August with a big ceremony and important people in attendance—but I don’t know what else to call Friday’s event here on my blog, so we’ll just stick with “graduation.” Today, we handed back the exams and gave people awards, which consisted of soccer jerseys, shorts, socks, and whistles donated from the US, based on a combination of good attendance throughout the course and good performance on the exam. Below are pictures:

This is my good friend Lucas posing with the jersey he received as an award for good performance in class. To be honest, every person here wants to be my friend because I am "white man," but this guy is seriously one of the few true friends I have in Kumba. I am grateful.
