Adding "A Mauritanian Minute"

Off to the right, you'll see that I added the blog A Mauritanian Minute. Teresa Winland, the daughter of my cousin Betty Kerrigan Winland, is in the Peace Corps in Mauritania and this is her blog.

Teresa graduated from college a year ago, having worked in women's projects, and went off to Mauritania shortly afterwards. Her PC assignment is specifically to create a center for educating girls. It looks like she's being successful!

Teresa's uncle Tom Kerrigan told me that at first, the girls were very hesitant about coming. Now they are out in the community teaching other girls what they've learned.
