Just one year ago the finishing touches were being put on the House of Ruth, a community center in rural Jordan. Now the center is bringing help and hope to women and children of all ages! The GHNI-Jordan team has more great news in their latest update.
“Several young ladies have successfully made it through one year of English studies at the House of Ruth. They are a foundational class and many of the other students who are now coming are either related to them or are their friends. These young ladies have a positive attitude towards learning and are excited to start a new year at the House of Ruth.
“Hannah, who is a local lady that assists running the House of Ruth, is a very gracious woman from Syria. One of the highlights of her week is when the House of Ruth is open and the students come. She is in our English class for women and is progressing through learning the language. She is very grateful to GHNI for working in her village and she is looking forward to a new year and the work of the House of Ruth.
“With some slight schedule changes the House of Ruth will be run as follows:
- Tuesdays: intermediate girls’ English class; ladies handy craft class.
- Wednesdays: ladies English class; young boys’ English class.
- Saturdays: two classes for young girls.
“We are also looking to add a beginner’s older girls’ class. We are also looking into setting up an adopt-a-student program that will allow for sponsors to adopt a girl in the program and be provided with short updates on the progress of their sponsored student.”
