When Yvette was 5 years old in the Philippines, she noticed her parents change. Her shy mom became more outspoken, and her stern dad became more open. Once a kid observing and learning from the adults around her, she now finds herself in the reversed role.
On Saturday, March 12th, the RISE scholars gathered to hear the needs of their community along with a few other members of Broetje Family Trust, including interns. I showed up not knowing what to expect, and what was meant to be weekend work turned into a day filled with love and joy.
One of the first classrooms of education that I attended was held in the milk parlor of a small dairy farm my parents owned. Twice a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, “in sickness and in health” (whether he felt like it or not), my father had to see that the cows on that farm were milked.
