This term Urban Hope Friday evenings have been full of challenges, as our girl’s club works towards earning a weekend in the countryside. Over the last few weeks they have tried brand new foods, eaten bugs and made teddies all in the name of the ‘residential’.
Last weeks challenge was to turn Urban Hope into a restaurant. The girls did themselves proud, putting together a three course Mexican themed meal, decorated the halls, served the food and did (most) of the cleaning up! Their families and friends came and supported them (taking photographic evidence of the girls washing up!) and everyone ate together.
All term the group have been rising to every challenge put in front of them, sometimes with fear, sometimes with resignation but always with determination to succeed, and each success has been celebrated, not only by each other but by their communities. And each successfully completed challenge is confirmation of the fact that with help, they can do things that they never thought they could.
Which is one successfully completed challenge for me!
