Meet Irysh

This is Irysh. She is 5 years old but she looks like she was 2. Jon and I met here last year and there was that sparkle in her eyes but somehow fading. She lives with her cousins in a house with no electricity and running water. She does not like to smile.

Now.. she won't stop smiling and being silly.
During our graduation.. more laughters!!
She will stay one more year with FLAG until she goes to a regular school. She should be in Grade 1 by now but she has never been taught how to read or write. We know she will do it and she has the determination and the sparkle is back.

Thanks for stopping and hope to see you soon!

You have some great things going on in here. I am moved by your dedication to help and generosity especially to our fellow kababayan. Thank you for following. I'm also now following you and will help promote your blog and F.L.A.G. More power!
