Learning about Literacy

A couple of weeks ago I shared about how Fatima has been such a help to me as I try to learn Changana language and culture here. One day she shared about the situation of many women here who have children at a very young age and are not able to continue studying at school. Because of this, many women are not able to read. Fatima said that she would like to learn how to read well (in Portuguese), so I offered to teach her once a week. It has been very good for me to begin learning about literacy training, and I'm very thankful for the opportunity to help my dear friend Fatima.
