The first 12 JWL students graduated in Bamyan with a Diploma in Liberal Arts awarded by Regis University in Denver, Colorado. It was a joyful event at both places. The parents have come from the remote Daikundi Province (one day by car over the snowy mountains) to celebrate with their sons and daughters. The Governor and the Director for education of the Province of Bamyan were present together with the Vice-Chancellor of Bamyan University. Most impressive were the students and the speeches of the students expressing their gratitude and appreciation for the studies they could do with JWL and JRS. The elegance of their English and thoughts were a proof of the quality of the formation and the impact it has on these young leaders in their communities.
