We are grateful

As a school, we sometimes focus so much on what we want/need that we do not yet have that it is easy to forget how lucky we are to have what we have. This point was driven home by a tour of slum schools in Korogocho and Ngomongo I recently had with friend.

The situation in this schools is very depressing. It is hard to imagine how learning goes on in such deprived circumstances. Inadequate and untrained teachers, very dark classrooms, leaking roofs, inadequate desks, and basics such as chalkboards, pencils, and notebooks lacking.

We could be like any of these schools but for the generous support we receive from friends in Italy and the US. So I wanted to take a moment to tell them how grateful we are.
