It official! We received word that our teaching/service grant to Manila is approved! We are extremely excited to be blessed with this opportunity. As a Rotary University Teacher Scholar, I will participate in Rotary programs and service projects as well as to facilitate international partnerships between my local Rotarian sponsor and host clubs and districts in the Philippines.
The kids made a count-down calendar - 201 days before May 11, 2009. We will spent 3 months during the summer in the Philippines.
I will be teaching a course at this university - Philippines Women's University - a faith-based non sectarian institution of higher education. A good friend- Kiko Benitez whom we know back in our days in Madison, Wisconsin introduced us to this fine establishment.
