My School Rocks! by Megan Davis
Every time I come to India the Children capture my heart! I have been working is a school with 51 kids from 1st to 5th grade. The first day we had to walk at least 30 minutes to get to the school. When we came in the classroom all of the kids saluted us and said in their best english, good morning Mam! My heart melted and I couldn't stop the tears. The kids in this place have nothing by our standard, but have so much more! We made bracelots in one of our activities and the kids would take them off and put them on our wrists. They have a hard time remembering my name and frequently call me sister! I love that! I can't help but notice their little feet with toes poking out of the socks, or no socks or shoes that have been worn so long they hardly have soles. We have been asked to make a needs assessment. My vote is for school uniforms and shoes and socks.
