Football and Working with Young Mothers

The team is pretty wiped after a long day at Anawim. As in the past few days, they taught in the school for the morning and early afternoon. Also, they worked with the young mothers in the newly built hostel. This is designed to help the young mothers with their newborns as well as teach them skills so that they may re-enter the community. The boys spent hours of the afternoon playing football (soccer) with the children and the girls spent some more time helping out the young mothers. Sister has been an inspiration to the team as they continue in their second week of work at Anawim. Tomorrow the team is headed into Abuja to work with some other outreach services of the Sisters of the Poorest of the Poor.
