So, not that I'm saying all good things are brought about by Americsn (as if!), but this is one awesome thing that an American gal married to a local fellow (not it's not me) is doing.
A friend of mine (and fellow Alabama gal, might I add) is running an awesome program for Jordan's youth. The program is helping to build leadership skills among today's teens helping them understand themselves and learn to lead others. Personally, I wish I could take the course too ;). Looks fascinating.
