The tsunami even washed away the vocational training center. So Oprah's Angel Network joined forces with Free the Children to break ground on a new one! At Oprah's Angel Network Center For Learning, adults will get the job training they need to rebuild their shattered communities. And the children will receive an education and desperately needed school supplies.
As the new buildings go up, hope for the community grows. "Kids smile," says Free the Children's founder, Craig Kielburger. "They laugh. They sing. Most importantly, they're hopeful. They're talking about their dreams again."
