  1. Hi, the link didn’t work for me; something about the server not working…

      That is strange. I just checked and it worked for me, maybe the server was down for a bit. These 2 chaps are going to be teaching English and coaching soccer to about 3 classes with on average 45 kids in a class. It is a township school and the kids there just love interacting with the volunteers-no doubt makes it a lot more interesting with their boring teachers. Unfortunately in South Africa a lot of the poorer schools have such huge number the children don’t get the amount of attention they deserve and sometimes the level of education is shocking. A lot of the teachers can be positively disinterested in the fact that they are educating our future generations. Very sad.

      • It worked that time…. What wonderful boys; well, young men really…
        Yes, I can understand the limited nature that some children have to suffer in regard to their education. It will certainly be a boost to them to have such enthusiastic tutors, even for a short period. I’ll look forward to some pics and more comment when they arrive… All the best.. 🙂
