Books and Supplies!

This week and last, our Serengeti Scholars from nine different schools in and around Arusha went shopping for School.  These were days that were hard to believe for these kids.  Brand new books.   The kind that only a teacher would have.   Having a book means not having to share with five other students.  These, along with new shoes, backpacks, uniforms all mean so much to the Scholars.  Having new things for school, ones that are just for you, mean that the Scholar means something:  That they are worthwhile, and that they are going to be somebody, able to help their families and society.   We saw this week also that what means next to nothing in other countries, means everything to a student who has grown up in some of the worst poverty in the World.
