You never know what to expect when visiting Itekeng School. Now that I have been visiting the school for several years the kids recognize us and our eager to greet us upon our arrival. Most of the time a throng of children greet us!
This time was no different.
They grab for your attention and hate to let go.
We had lots to do this day as our schedule included, bringing over 300 pairs of new shoes, new school shirts, and new school packs for many of the students at the school.
Shoes lined up and ready to be distributed.
You would be amazed by the order in which the kids line up to receive their shoes. One by one they come ready to be fitted.
The needs are great. Students walk in with giant holes in their shirts.
But, they are happy. They give smiles and thumbs up which remind us that we are making a difference.
These kids don’t take the gifts for granted. They are extremely grateful for what they receive. This sweet girl whispered in my ear her gratitude as she received her new shirt.
Last, but not least, school packs for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade classrooms. Keke helped us hand out each school pack and each time the kids would hurry up and open their new bags to see what was inside.
(The smiles, like the girl on the far left say it all.)
Delight over a new set of pencils!
Hurray for new school packs! Thanks Up with Down’s for helping us package the contents and bring hope to hundreds of kids in Lesotho!
We’re bringing smiles, one child at a time.
