At last we managed to get the boxes of stationery delivered in Cape Town to Little Libraries run by Camille. You can see from her letter at the bottom how THRILLED she was with all the stuff and enthusiastic to get delivering. She has a FB page and has reported on it, so we should take a look under Little Libraries.
For the colouring books and crayons we thank Knit-a-Square who donated a whole lot of stationery to redistribute to our creches.
Nethi is an amazing teacher. Every time I have been at her school, I have left with a smile pasted all over my face. I love how she stimulates her pupils with the little she has, even inventing a poker game with maths and domino cards to teach her children about numbers.
As you might have seen on our FB post, some of your stationery, namely all colouring books and some crayons went to a school where we delivered tables and chairs. This lady loves to teach about numbers so the colour-by-number books were especially a hit.
Note from Camille : I felt very overwhelmed when the huge 8 boxes arrived on Wednesday. I piled them in our lounge as we were about to leave for the Klein Karoo to deliver a little library. Upon our return, we opened them to sort their contents. Thank you so much for the various things. I have made a plan for the following items: stationery will be split amongst a few schools - colouring books will all go to a school for which we are buying tables and chairs so they have never had the pleasure of sitting at their own chair and colour things in before - playing cards, dinky cars and the few National Geographic will be redistributed during our upcoming trip to Lesotho (very excited about this!) I will keep you posted about all that as we are getting on. Thank you ever so much for everything and your support. Camille
