The pupils of kindergarten are having their year-end graduation and right now, it’s an important achievement for them.  The joy and support of their parents is quite evident, but who wouldn’t be happy to see their child progress and excel

 

Children are our greatest resource. they carry within them the shape of tomorrow; bear witness to our own values and choices…education is the biggest equalizer of opportunity in life; breaking inter-generational transmission of poverty, reducing disease burden and mortality and making a powerful human being whose limit cannot be established”.
