Today I learned how to help people in Zambia.

We could give money to them so they could buy more furniture and more clothes. And we’re going to help them get enough money to go to school. Older brothers and sisters have to carry their younger baby brothers and sisters on their back or belly and they don’t hold them like we do in Georgia.

Today I learned that in Africa that there’s a kind of tree that looks like the roots are sticking up on the top. It can collect water for the animals to drink if it gets hot. I also learned about the Adinkra Cloth and made my own square of one. I learned this in the morning when all the Kindergarten classes came to my class. Kate’s grandfather went to Zambia, and he learned that the children there love to be in pictures, and they have to carry everything on their head except buckets of water. They carry those in their hands. They have to boil the water until it is clean enough to drink. If I were going to Zambia, I would help people raise money and if they don’t have schools, I’ll help them get some schools.
