Change is in the Air

Several weeks ago Project Eden made an exciting change. Several of our girls have started attending a local public school and are truly enjoying their new learning environment. Their new school focuses on Math, Chinese and English. Their original teachers from Project Eden help them with their homework each night for a few hours after dinner to provide extra support.

Change in the air

One of the goals of Project Eden is to create an environment where these students can transition into independent living with the loving assistance of teachers and staff as they do so. A wonderful opportunity has been presented to four of our older students who have started a work/study program. The girls leave early in the morning to go to work and then they arrive back home for their Computer, English and Chinese classes. So far the girls seem to be enjoying their new responsibilities and we are excited to watch them continue to grow and mature.

A few weekends ago, we were honored to have Andrew Colquhoun, as well as one of our project’s BIGGEST supporters, Greg, Anya and their precious daughter Sophie, out for a visit. The girls, the staff and our visitors had a lovely hike around the property, as well as a competitive game of basketball. We had such a wonderful time with you all!
