CMEF Board Member Dr. Aga Rehamo wrote last night that 10 basketballs have arrived at Zeyue Elementary School, purchased through contributions from Cool Mountain contributors. Principal Ashuo can now start practice (uniforms will arrive later). He has been very successful as a boys’ coach, and is eager to extend his expertise and enthusiasm to the girls’ team. Zeyue has also received textbooks for girls to study women’s health.
The third prong of our girls’ education program, a band to play traditional Nuosu music, will get started when we can purchase the instruments with the advice of well-known Nuosu Yi musicians.
Special thanks go to the Journey Charitable Foundation, a longtime supporter of girls’ education around the world, and to everyone who has contributed to our efforts!
