    Bravo Volleyball coaches, you have shown and sincerely articulated the true sense of Lakes-Community to the world. Yes, for girls to excel socially and educationally we must have role models who think globally and act locally and there we have them in the likes of Mabor Kau. Let’s rise above our villages’ philosophies and restore the Lakes that used to glorify tolerance, dignity and unity of minds and hearts. Keep it up boys!
    Remain richly blessed
