On May 5th, 2019, MWLW Organized a Social Activity with the Girls from Shendelli.

 

After an intensive school year and a successfully completed English course organized by MWL, the group of girls in Shendelli participated in a social activity. The girls got a chance to visit the city of Permet. It was their first visit to “the town of roses” as the locals call it. The city is rich with cultural heritage and monuments to its history.

New challenges await these wonderful girls, some of whom are preparing to take their school examinations. We wish them every success on the path of knowledge!
