Library Progress: Intern Post by Marilyn Lewis
Bumping along in our van through the African bush on the supposed ‘short cut’ between schools, there were so many things to catch the eye. The brightly dressed women gracefully balancing a variety of things on their heads while walking along the red dirt road. Mud huts that are actually small ‘stores’ where enterprising women sell the extra produce from their gardens. And Sisal hemp plantations.
But what caught my eye was a group of children by the side of the road. One little girl stood alone, reading a book! Because of her uniform I knew she was from Taru Primary School.
