"Education is the Most Powerful Weapon"
HHELP Celebrates Students and Volunteers
Hope House resident and HHELP (Hope House English Language Program) student Benedicte addressed the standing-room-only crowd at our end of semester celebration and recognition. She quoted Nelson Mandela by reminding us, “Education is the most powerful weapon that can be used to change the world…it has changed my life. At Hope House, the teachers help you to understand life in America. If I do not speak English, I will not develop as well in this country.”
We recognized students with the best attendance in each class and thanked our volunteer teachers and assistants who provide small classes focused on practical communications skills and conversation as well as reading, writing, and comprehension. The festivities included Congolese and Angolese music, and plenty of American and African food. Special thanks to Leonardo’s Pizza, Flatbread Company and Moriah Store for your delicious contributions to our HHELP celebration.
HHELP summer classes start on July 8th. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 207-217-4456.
