They are hungry

Isti with Food

Isti, Director of the Tsibiri Boarding School

Isti, the director of the Tsibiri Boarding School has a huge heart! Normally only the boarding students are served three meals each day. However, when we were discussing the food program this week, Isti told me that the students from the village were eating with them. Their parents were sending them to the school for lunch and dinner. I was surprised since this is not something I have heard of before. When I asked him why, Isti simply said, “They are hungry.” At the beginning of the school year, the crops had yet to be harvested and people were definitely feeling the effects of not having enough food.
