This week we completed letters introducing ourselves to the children at our sister school in Uganda. We described who we are and told them something we are proud of. Mrs Nicholson took our letters to the Post Office and posted them on Thursday. Now we can't wait to get replies.
We cannot skype them or even email them as their school is so poor it doesn't have any computers. In fact they really don't have much as you can see in the photographs below. So writing letters and using the post is the only way for us to communicate.
We would like to raise some money for the school to make things a little easier for them. All their funds currently go on feeding, clothing, and keeping the students healthy with the little left over for going to paper and pencils for their learning. They don't have desks and chairs like us, or a playground to play on at breaks. Do you have any ideas on how we could raise money? Have you done any fund raising over the web before? What has worked? We are very new to this and would love to hear of any successes you have had.
