I (Sallie) am 5 days into my trip in South Africa. It is so good to be back after nearly 4 years! – where did that time go?
So far,I have visited 4 of the schools our volunteer education programme supports - and Emmanuel Care Centre, the community care programme our volunteers support. I was privileged yesterday to be invited to attended the meeting for the Calabash Trust Schools Cluster so I have been able to catch up with all the school principals.
Where do I start – so much good news and still so many challenges.
The playing field at Tshume – WOW! – Ground that was barren and uninviting ( if not downright dangerous) is now a green and safe place for the children to play – click here a video of them doing just that – I’m not one for tears but I have to own up to having a misty eyed moment as I watched the children running around as children should.
Thankyou to all the volunteers and their friends who fundraised – look at what you went and did! BRAVO!
