Our school is humming along, as is the St. Wiggins Academy, and the pre-school that Charlini attends. It's amazing how enthusiastic the students are with no books, no pencils, nothing on the walls, and untrained teachers. If you've ever read "Three Cups of Tea", you know that children will sit on bare ground with no teachers to try to learn. It is amazing what the gift of school uniform ($12) or a year's tuition at government school ($50) will do for a child, a village, and a country. We are so proud of those back in Arkansas who have been supplying scholarships for the Bunda Teacher's College for the last several years. You guys are helping change the face of Africa. Thank you.
