This graduation address was delivered by Mme Anorine Pierre on June 10, 2015, at a Mothers’ Club graduation ceremony in Borgne, Haiti.
Read the valedictory address in kreyol, below.
I am proud to speak today on behalf of all members of Mothers’ Clubs in the audience. If we are all here today attending this beautiful graduation ceremony, it is because we value our Mothers’ Clubs.
It is a program that we cherish and appreciate. Look at the moms around you today, their faces are radiant and their beautiful smiles reflect all the joy that overflows their hearts. If I am standing here today as an animatrice who can train other moms, it is because I first committed to go through the training.
We wish that the Mothers’ Clubs continue to be active in our commune, to make it possible for more mothers to learn how to take better care of their families and so that all we women can learn how to take better care of ourselves. I would be remiss if did not thank S.E.E. FANM, H.O.P.E., and ASB for the excellent work they are doing in the commune of Borgne. Keep working to make Borgne a better place where all enjoy good health. We know that we still have a long way to go to reach our goals for the community of Borgne.
Finally, we thank all those who helped transform us into model moms in our communities. Today’s date will be forever engraved in our memory. Even if we were to leave Borgne, we will never forget what happened here on June 10th, 2015!
Congratulations, ladies! Well done!
Thank you! Thank you!
