No Poor Among Us has recently received visits from many different government officials. They have all left very impressed with the programs here and committed to help us. On Friday May 18, the governor of Maputo’s wife made a special visit to the center. She had heard about the literacy classes and No Poor and wanted to come see first hand what was happening.
A lot of effort went into preparing for her arrival. Many community members gathered and choirs practiced to perform at the ceremony. The news outlets arrived and filmed the ceremony and interviewed members of our staff. We also had people from our literacy classes perform cultural dances and songs. After the welcoming ceremony, she visited each of the classrooms to see the center in action.
The Governor’s wife was so impressed with the center and asked us to send a special thank you to those who donate to our cause. She said she has seen very few organizations have the impact on a community and individual lives that No Poor is having. She hopes we can continue to work together to grow our program and put literacy classes into more impoverished areas.
It was such a blessing for the staff and organization to be recognized for the hard work that has been put in here. We have great team that is working extremely hard to change the lives of the people in this community. They were so happy to be recognized for their hard work.
