Dear Boys and Girls of Evergreen Lutheran Sunday School,

I am so excited.  Today I visited a school in a village near our town of Dodoma.
The school is for children ages 6 to 14.  It is a public school and is free for the students.
The students wear uniforms but some can not afford new ones so they must wear used ones.
The school has no paper, no texbooks, no playground and no place to eat.  The students sit on long benches at a desk or sit on the floor.  The teacher writes on a chalkboard and the students copy in a small notebook.

They have no doors or windows in their school just openings where the door and windows would go.
There are many flies and insects.  There are no bathrooms or running water. Many of the teachers live on campus because they do not have a car

Hope  you  enjoy the pictures!
