Could suddenly see clearly

‘It’s great to be here because the teachers and the children are caring and loving. And there is good food and the environment is nice here. The greatest moment was when I got my glasses and I could suddenly see clearly. Now I can study so much better, and I can learn my favorite topic, Kiswahili, at the advanced level!’
