Riding motos, we pass within an inch of a cow’s hind end as we head on a path across alternating flat, parched grasslands and gullys of red bedrock. Twice we pass small groups of lean farmers wandering the bush with a metal detector, searching for the best spots to dig for gold now that harvest is over.
We arrive to some nice surprises at Guanwarre school. First is that a new building of 3 classrooms has been added. Each grade level, except for the pre-kindergarten and kindergarten, now has their own classroom. Also new is a borehole for clean water, students no longer have to walk to a nearby pond to fetch water. And then a very sweet surprise, some Guanwarre parents have started a school garden. This year they grew white beans that will nicely supplement the food staples that we are buying for the feeding program.
