Plans are moving forward to develop a program in Solola for the 15 poorest identified families in the area. I have to say that I'm really quite excited about this. I've spent the last two days building an outline for the program which is multi-faceted and pretty inclusive. So, next week I'll be headed to Solola to meet the 14 additional families (as well as see Juana and her family who will be the 15th family in the program). We will spend the first morning in a meeting with all the families, and then the afternoon of the first day and all the next day will be spent visiting their homes and learning their stories. I'll be posting more details as they become more official.
I'm excited! If you're only half as excited as I am, you're pretty excited too!
