Bhojpuri Primer Construction

Here's a pictorial walk through the past 3 weeks of the first ever Bhojpuri literacy primer and LEI Teacher Training Workshop:

lively discussion

Gyan working to input the stories in the computer

Gyan speaks like 8 languages and was the lead LEI consultant

Rajesh didn't want to wear that metal plate on his head.  This brother is a church planter par excellence 

goofing around

new words from each new lesson go on the wall

Lesson 21 from the Bhojpuri primer

portable ladder

cows may be gods here but they don't eat like they are

india's famous (or infamous) auto-rickshaw

starting everyday with worship

showing off the Bhojpuri N.T.

chow time

eating with hands is tastier

my favorite - Chotelal - great cook who started to read and write while we were there. 

so much smarter than tracking dirt into buildings

LEI consultants

deep in thought or snoozing? you decide.
one of the things I admire about India is how nothing goes to waste. This is cow poo that is packed together and slapped on the wall (while still fresh).....when it dries, it's great fuel for burning.
