Courage from the Students

It has been 2 months since the Nigerian School girls from Chibok were abducted.  Rather than closing down the schools in the area out of fear, this school featured in the video has reopened and resumed classes.  The students are learning, singing and praying.

An NGO, called Operation Blessing, is supporting the school providing food, computers and books for a library.  Operation Blessing is providing moral support as well demonstrating global concern for their welfare.

The school children appear determined to get an education despite the fears and threats from the terrorist group, Boko Haram.  Receiving global support sends a message to the good citizens of Chibok and their children that their struggle for education is worth fighting for.  Their determination sends a strong message of hope.

In other news, the UN education envoy, Gordon Brown, visited the region to talk about improving security, and pledged that a new school will be rebuilt where the girls were abducted.
