Victor Hugo Week

I was reminded of two Victor Hugo quotes this week.

One was on Friday, when I was looking at the website of one of the 1:1 Mentoring project’s new partners: Prieteni Pentru Tine (Friends for you).

They have a Victor Hugo quote on the corner of their page that says:

Which means something like…Every child we educate is a person we have won [over].

I’m going to have to write something soon to you all about the folks PPT, they really blew me away and they had some amazing stories.

Then, on my last “Baby English Class” Saturday, during an informal conversation with the educators/caregivers/staff at the camin in Bucurestii Noi, totally unprompted, they started telling me that…

“[They] wish more people would come to the camin and talk to the kids…because the kids don’t need things, they need people to pay attention to them.”

I was reminded of this Victor Hugoism:

Needless to say, I’m excited for the pilot project to move this September; for the first mentors to start visiting the camin.
