mozambique school pics

as requested by lovely  Geli from Letters from Usedom and against the techological odds
here are a few 
pictures from the Matsopane primary school in Mozamique
that we have taken into our hearts

over the years we have delivered countless boxes of lovingly compiled school boxes and educational stuff from Geli to the children of Matsopane Primary School

opening some of the boxes is always full of suprises

the head teacher, and another teacher

children sing a thank you song

Wonderful photos of the children.

What wonderful smiles to lift the spirits. And to know they'll soon have a school room big enough for them is just astonishing.
What angels they must think you and Geli are, I know I do.

Val said...

Oh my - the delight on their faces! How rewarding for everyone involved. Simply inspiring. Thank you for what you do Val.

Val said...

Fire Byrd - the new school room is largely due to your efforts - i am just the front person for a band of angels :-)

Bonnie - i think my part is the best - its such fun to hand out all the goodies :-) but the main efforts lie elsewhere I must confess.

I don’t think there is anything better than to give and to make others happy. These children do look very happy and that must make your heart very warm. Thanks for doing this, it is very good karma.
