Fadhili & Faraja Achinda Graduate From CVUHS [SIV404]



6/12/15: We met the Achindas back in January of 2013 when the family was reunited after being apart for 8 years. Robert Achinda is a political asylee originally from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Four of his oldest children enrolled in Champlain Valley Union High School upon arrival in Vermont. Twins Faraja and Fadhili (pronounced Fah-zhee-lee) made a big impression on the CVUHS community before graduating this month.

Eva visits the Achindas at CVUHS in Hinesburg during exam week and joins them on their graduation day at UVM's Patrick Gymnasium in Burlington.

Music: Kevin MacLeod, "Dubakupado" and "Tafi Maradi"
