Back to School

This week in the Purkal Stree Shakti workshops you can hear a lot more English being spoken. Some of our ladies asked to get English lessons so that they can sell the products to the international customers who visit us and also so that they can understand their children’s homework better. So after the winter holidays, classes started, 15 ladies go for 1 hour lessons every afternoon. The improvement within just a couple of weeks is fantastic. At first it was body parts and naming them but now there are full sentences being spoken and written about their families, the weekend and what time the chai break is! Hopefully we will have them writing some blog pieces at the end of their nine month course.
