I have a new correspondent child, Victor Kariuki (KE6120281).  The information on the website for him doesn't say what language they use in his community.  Can you please tell me?

I have another child in Kenya and have learned some phrases in her language that I have used when writing to her.  I would like to do the same with Victor, if I could.  Thanks.

Chak, the primary language in Militya's community is Minahasa Malay and Sangihe. Maniraho lives in the community Kirehe and there is only one ethnic group, Banyarwanda, and only one language, Kinyarwanda. Ing lives in Mae-lanoi District Municipality and they speak Thai, Korean, and Lawa which is a Mon–Khmer language of Thailand. In regards to languages they are currently learning in school, we do not show record of this however, many of our children often learn English in their schools. I would encourage you to ask them if they're learning another language in school as I'm sure they'd be happy to tell you:).

Once you have received their welcome book, you can look at the page that has information about the student/child center. The language used there is listed on that page.

Hi Douglas! The primary language in the Kirimon community that Victor lives in is, Samburu. I think it's awesome that you're trying to learn phrases in your children's languages!

Hi Chak and Douglas! You all can also view your child's language and culture by logging into your "My Account." Additional information about your child is listed in the "My Sponsorships" section. Then click the tab for "Child Development Center." The primary language and ethnic group in your child's area is listed in the last sentence of the first paragraph.
